Match Preview: Norwich City vs. Cardiff City

The Bluebirds travel to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon…

12 April 2018

Cardiff City make the trip to East Anglia this weekend, as they take on Daniel Farke’s Norwich City.

Norwich welcome the Bluebirds to Carrow Road following a midweek draw with Sunderland.

What to expect from the Canaries…

Farke’s side currently occupy 13th in the Sky Bet Championship table. That draw with Sunderland is their 14th of the season, the same number of wins and losses they’ve also contested thus far.

Level on points with their East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, the Canaries have only engineered two wins in their last 12 games. However, the most recent of these – a 3-1 win over Aston Villa last weekend – has seen them rise above Leeds United and QPR.

Young Englishman James Maddison (pictured above) has attracted a lot of interest during this campaign and currently tops the Norwich scoring charts with 15 goals. Still only 21, the U21 international has also engineered 11 assists for his teammates, also putting him at the summit in that category for his club.

Winger Josh Murphy is another who has been a consistent performer for the Canaries, who he signed for professionally in 2013. Coming through the Academy ranks, the 23 year-old has 10 goals this season, the most recent of those was a left-footed stunner in that win over Villa at Carrow Road.

In the hot seat…

Farke received his first taste of English football when joining Norwich in the summer of 2017. The 41 year-old’s two previous jobs came in his native Germany, first with SV Lippstadt 08 – where he had three spells as a player – before taking the reins of Borussia Dortmund II.

The ex-forward has won 17 of the 48 games he has overseen as Canaries boss after taking over from stand-in coach Alan Irvine on May 25th last year.

Previous meetings…

The Bluebirds made it four league wins on the spin in the reverse fixture in December. Goals from Junior Hoilett, Omar Bogle and a Joe Ralls penalty saw City secure a 13th victory of the season, at Cardiff City Stadium.

2010 saw the exact same result in our second year at CCS, as goals from the deadly trio of Jay Bothroyd, Michael Chopra and Peter Whittingham saw the Bluebirds begin a four-match unbeaten run against the Canaries from 2010 until 2014.

Club connections…

Current Bluebird Anthony Pilkington made the direct move from East Anglia – where he spent three years – in 2014. Our No.13 has gone on to make 102 appearances for City, scoring 23 goals, including five this season. Pilks netted twice for the Bluebirds on his last visit to Carrow Road, in September 2016.

Craig Bellamy began his professional career with the Canaries, signing in 1996. The 38 year-old had two spells with his boyhood club scoring 17 goals including a stunning winner against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in 2011, before hanging up his boots in 2014.

Other players to have memorable spells with both clubs include David Marshall, Robert Earnshaw & Cameron Jerome.

Match Report: Norwich City 0-2 Cardiff City

14 April 2018

Late goals from Kenneth Zohore & Junior Hoilett helped the Bluebirds return to winning ways, defeating Norwich City, 2-0, at Carrow Road.

The home side began as expected - playing possession football while trying to break down the Bluebirds. Philippines international Neil Etheridge was called into action first on 10 minutes. Norwich forward Dennis Srbeny's low effort was held well by the City No.25.

As always, the Bluebirds were dangerous on the counter. A neat move down the right side involving Loïc Damour & Nathaniel Mendez-Laing opened up space, with Mendez-Laing crossing to the edge of the box for Craig Bryson to strike, but he curled just over the bar. Bryson had another chance on 25 minutes, with Angus Gunn making a fine low stop to deny the Scot.

The best chance of the first half came after 33 minutes as German forward Srbeny hit the post from a quick corner kick - catching the City defence off guard. Thankfully for City, the rebound cleared the crossbar. The Bluebirds were then forced into an early chance as Sol Bamba, who had injured himself stopping a powerful effort from Srbeny, was unable to continue. Bruno Ecuele Manga replaced the Ivory Coast international.

Gabon international Manga was caught in possession in his penalty box just before the half-time whistle, but captain Sean Morrison was on hand to expertly block a goalbound effort from the dangerous Srbeny.

Forward Gary Madine started the match in attack for the Bluebirds, and went close to opening his account for the Club with seven minutes gone in the second half. Madine rose highest to meet Junior Hoilett's free kick, but the ball drifted just wide of goal. Maddison, Srbeny & Murphy continued to trouble for the hosts in the second half without creating any clear cut chances.

Neil Warnock's final substitution of the game saw the introduction of Kenneth Zohore after 72 minutes - and he almost made an instant impact. The Danish forward met Hoilett's low cross at the near post, poking just wide of goal. This was a sign of things to come for the Bluebirds, with Zohore making a clinical difference in the final stages.

Zohore timed his run to perfection, staying onside to head towards goal, but Gunn made a strong stop. The Norwich defence tried to cut off all options for the rebound, but Zohore showed his attacking instincts, slipping the ball into the near post from an acute angle to give City a crucial lead.

The Bluebirds didn't let nerves get to them despite three minutes being added on - and even added a second goal deep into added time. Canadian international Hoilett's delightful flicked volley from 20-yards flew into the corner of the net much to the delight of the travelling support.
