This afternoon the Yellow Army rolls into the West Country to meet high-flying Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
The Robins will go back on top of the table should they win and Stoke fail to beat Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, and Canaries chief Glenn Roeder believes they are there on merit:
Generally speaking the league table doesn’t lie and Bristol are there on merit. They are very close now, very much in the home straight and they can see the winning line but they haven’t got across it yet. They play good football and if we allow them to play it will be much more difficult for us.
The hosts will give late fitness tests to Lee Johnson and Jamie McCombe, while the Canaries are sweating on the availability of Gary Doherty and the influential Darel Russell.
A few facts…
League Position: Bristol City 2nd, Norwich 17th.

Top Goalscorer: Bristol City – Byfield (8), Norwich – Cureton (14).
My Prediction: When I originally made my predictions I went for home win, but I can’t bring myself to predict a defeat. Bristol City 1 Norwich City 1.
