Predicted Norwich City and Derby County line-ups: Huge test for visitors

Norwich City

Here are the possible teams for the massive clash between Norwich and Derby County this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 14th March 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich

Odds: Norwich 6/5, Draw 28/11, Derby 14/5

Norwich hosting Derby County this weekend is one of the biggest and most difficult games to call on the Championship fixtures list.

The Canaries are in good form and their incentive for a win this weekend is that it would put them ahead of the Rams in the table and closer to an automatic promotion place.

They have the home advantage and should be looking to entertain the home crowd and put on a good exhibition of professional and attacking football.

Derby have suffered a recent blip in results but they remain in a good position near the top of the table.

It will be interesting to see if Steve McClaren makes many changes as he looks to get a little bit more out of his attack.

Derby have had all week to reflect on the disappointment of two points slipping away in their last game against Birmingham.

That period of reflection will make the side determined heading into the game and McClaren will stress the need to start the game well, play sensible football and silence the home support.
