The Championship leaders have been reliable in the later stages of their recent games and could outlast a Hull side who have been running out of steam

Norwich City are in pole position for a Premier League return as the Championship season enters the final stages.

Six wins from their last seven outings see Daniel Farke's side top the division ahead of the midweek coupon and they're 4/7 (1.57) with 888Sport to beat Hull City on Wednesday.

The Tigers had an impressive six-match winning run around the turn of the year and have moved comfortably into mid-table and away from danger.

They've been somewhat hit and miss of late though with two wins, three defeats and a draw in their previous six league matches. It's 17/4 (5.25) that they come away from Carrow Road with a victory while the draw trades at 3/1 (4.0). The previous game between the pair ended 0-0 and that can be backed at 14/1 (15.0) with 888Sport.

There's a recent trend which looks to offer some value though. Norwich have been showing their title credentials late on in matches of late and a repeat here could offer a tastier price than simply backing them simply to come out on top.

Farke's side have won the second half in five of their last six league games. The Canaries have scored an incredible 25 goals in the final 15 minutes of matches this term and 68 per cent of their league goals have been scored after the break.

What's more, at Carrow Road Norwich have scored 71% of their Championship goals in the second half of matches. On that basis, backing the hosts to win the second half at 17/20 (1.85) makes plenty of appeal in this clash.

The visitors have conceded 59% of their league goals in the second 45 minutes of matches this season and conceded three times after the break against Nottingham Forest in their most recent outing.

Given how strongly Norwich have been performing in the late stages of matches of late, backing them to win the second 45 minutes in isolation at 17/20 (1.85) looks well worth backing with 888Sport.
