PREVIEW: Norwich City v Hull City

After the roller-coaster finale of the World Cup Qualifying internationals, thankfully, the players go back to their day job this weekend, with Hull City facing back to back games on the road - the first of which, is a trip to in-form Norwich City, nestling in 9th in the Championship table on a six game unbeaten run.

Meanwhile, Hull City are thrust back into action after walloping Birmingham City 6-1 on home turf, but manager Leonid Slutsky is yet to find the formula for success on the road, even though he appeared to find all the fun of the fair this week. Top man, for that, by the way. Fraizer Campbell picked up a knock during the routing of Birmingham so is almost certain to miss out, but Stephen Kingsley is firmly ruled out, after requiring an operation on his groin following the Preston North End match. Max Clark is set to stand in once more.

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke is finding his feet in the Championship as he continues to see his side climb the table. The stats are intriguing for this fixture on the head to head, with the Tigers losing just one of the last six fixtures against the Carnaries, yet remarkably, Hull City have only won once here in their last eight visits. The hosts will be without Marley Watkins who is banned, while Mario Vrancic (calf) and Marco Stiepermann could return following recent injuries.

Don't forget the Hull City fans forum returns at 7pm this Friday evening on Hull Kingston Radio 107.4FM. You can download the free app, tune in on your radio, or listen online if you click here!
