Team News: Norwich City
Michael McGovern (Hamstring Injury) and Aston Oxborough (Achilles tendon surgery) are unavailable for Norwich manager Daniel Farke.
Team News: Rotherham United
Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there’s just the one fitness issue for the Rotherham United boss Paul Warne to be concerned with. Chiedozie Ogbene (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Norwich City will probably get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the other end, Rotherham United will not find it easy to score a goal of their own although we do think that they will probably end up hitting back at some stage here, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a comfortable 3-1 victory for Norwich City at the end of the 90 minutes.
