Norwich City are top of the Championship, but head to a ground that they have not won at in 30 years on Tuesday.

Norwich City manager Alex Neil has told the club's official website that he wants his side to do what they did against Everton and Wolves and end a poor record at another ground as they prepare to face Fulham.

The Canaries' last victory away to Fulham came in 1986 when they 1-0 winners, and they head to Craven Cottage in high spirits as the Championship leaders, with Neil hoping they can end this barren run.

"We seemed to have a poor record at a few places. With good performances and results we've put a lot of those to bed," Neil told canaries.co.uk.

"Hopefully this can be another one."

While the team's terrible run at Craven Cottage is not Neil's biggest concern, the Scot will be desperate for another three points having only just hit the top of the Championship.

Norwich moved top on Saturday thanks to a win at home to Rotherham United, and Huddersfield Town's defeat to Sheffield Wednesday meant the Canaries remained top of the tree going into the next round of fixtures.

Divisional rivals Newcastle United are breathing down Norwich's neck in second, with just a point separating two of last season's relegated sides from the Premier League.

They are the two best teams in the league, and ending a 30 year win-less streak will ensure that Norwich stay above the Magpies.
