Norwich City host Rotherham on Saturday as they look to move on from a disappointing draw against struggling Hull City midweek.
The stalemate still leaves the Canaries top of the table as Boro too could only manage a point against Preston North End, however victory for Leeds United and Sheffield United means just three points separates top from fourth heading into December.
Norwich were left to rue a series of missed opportunities against the Tigers, most noticeable Tom Trybull’s golden chance in the second-half. Manager Daniel Farke also felt his side should’ve won the game, saying his side had “much more possession and more chances.”
Whilst Hull haven’t been shy of causing an upset this season against top table sides, the result still came as a massive shock to most of the Norwich faithful given their recent form in front of goal, scoring 12 in the three games prior to Tuesday nights fixture. The goalless draw also put an end to Norwich’s impressive six game winning streak.
Looking ahead to Saturday and Norwich will be looking to regain this winning form against a Rotherham side that has won just one of their last 12 matches, although they did come close against QPR on Tuesday, only losing out to the three points after a injury-time equaliser from Rangers’ Luke Freeman.
Whilst many fans will be expecting Norwich to return to their form of playing opposition out the park, especially with the fixture being at Carrow Road, I don’t think it will be that simple. Rotherham have drawn their last three games in the league, and have held their own against top sides such as Middlesborough and Sheffield United already this season. If Rotherham stick to the game plan Hull City went with, I can see this also ending in a draw.
