Norwich City will host Watford at Carrow Road on Monday (January 2) in the Championship. The hosts have struggled for form in recent weeks, rapidly falling behind in the race for promotion, prompting the dismissal of manager Dean Smith. Norwich played out a 1-1 draw against Reading in their last game. They looked set to come away with all three points before their opponents scored a late leveller.
Watford, meanwhile, have had mixed results this season but remain in the race for the playoffs. They lost 4-0 against struggling Swansea City in their last game and could have no complaints after failing to create enough noteworthy chances to alter the result.
The visitors have picked up 37 points from 25 games this season and are fifth in the standings.
Norwich are on a three-game winless streak and have won just one of their last five games. They are without a win in their last four home games and could struggle here
Watford, meanwhile, are on a run of back-to-back defeats and have also won just one of their last five league games They have, however, lost just one of their last five away games and could pick up all three points here.
Prediction: Norwich City 0-1 Watford
This match will start from 8:30 pm
This match will take place on 2 December, 2023
Interim Norwich bosses Steve Weaver and Allan Russell must decide whether to hand Idah a second successive start after he made his first outing from the opening whistle in 2022-23 on Friday.
With the likes of Todd Cantwell on the sidelines, Onel Hernandez would likely be recalled on the left flank if a change is made.
Isaac Hayden will also be considered for a recall in midfield if Weaver and Russell wish to introduce fresh legs.
While Bilic will inevitably make changes to his Watford XI, their capitulation came after three substitutions were made versus Swansea.
Francisco Sierralta could be restored to the defence for the first time since November 5, while Vakoun Issouf Bayo will hope for a rare start in attack.
However, the likes of Hamza Choudhury and Joao Pedro remain out injured, and Hassane Kamara is suspended due to his sending off against Millwall.
Gunn; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, McCallum; Nunez, McLean, Sara; Sargent, Pukki, Hernandez
Bachmann; Sierralta, Troost-Ekong, Cathcart; Gaspar, Asprilla, Bacuna, Dele-Bashiru, Ngakia; Bayo, Sarr
