Preview ahead of the Premier League clash on Friday evening…
NORWICH City host Watford in the Premier League clash on Friday evening, kick-off 8:00pm, live on Sky Sports.
The Canaries, who were promoted to the Premier League last season, will be hoping to return to winning ways following a 2-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion last time out.
The Canaries are currently on a four game winless run and will be hoping to gain their first victory since beating Manchester City on 14th September.
Watford, on the other hand, will be looking to gain their first league win of the season in Norfolk against a very tough Canaries outfit.
The Hornets, who recently hired a new manager, haven’t seen the bounce that often happens with a change of manager. They will be hoping their fortunes change soon…
