Norwich host Swansea in a game that could see their lead at the top of the Championship extended to five points.

The Canaries have won their last three matches and remain unbeaten in league games at Carrow Road since the turn of the new year.

Graham Potter's side have been inconsistent this season but proved they can cause problems for the top teams when beating Sheffield United in January.

Match Preview

Daniel Farke Norwich City manager 2018-19

Norwich hold all the aces when it comes to the Championship promotion race but, with Sheffield United and Leeds on their tail, they need to keep on churning out results.

Swansea represent a tough test for Norwich and, although the Swans sit 14th in the Championship, they are a recently relegated side packed full of talent.

Ollie McBurnie is likely to be the biggest threat to the Canaries as the striker has netted 16 times in the league already this season. 

Daniel Farke understands the threats that Swansea pose and isn't taking this one for granted despite the difference in league position between the two sides.

"They have top Championship quality,” he said in his press conference.

“I am always full of respect for (Oli) McBurnie. He was brilliant in his last loan spell at Barnsley and we struggled with him. Then (Bersant) Celina and (Dan) James have so much potential. They can play on a Premier League level.”

Norwich have the advantage of playing before their promotion rivals this weekend and a win here opens up a five-point cushion between them and Leeds at the top of the Championship table.

The Canaries are within touching distance of the Premier League and this game against Swansea could go a long way towards helping them achieve their top-flight ambitions.
