Norwich City heads to St Andrew’s for the second time in the space of a week on Tuesday night (7:00 p.m. KB) – this time to take on the owners, Birmingham City

The Canaries are hoping for a similar result after beating Coventry last Wednesday thanks to goals from Teemu Pukki and Emi Buendia If Norwich can win they would gain a 10 point lead at the top of the table before Brentford, Swansea and Watford all play on Wednesday evening

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke will likely keep the confidence of the squad that beat Rotherham 1-0 on Saturday It means Christoph Zimmermann will again be a substitute at the heart of City’s defense with Ben Gibson sidelined with a back problemThe loaned Burnley will likely be back in contention for Sunday’s trip to Wycombe

“We need the same level of performance (compared to Coventry) for sure, but also in a different way because Birmingham in terms of approach and also style of play is really different compared to Coventry

“Birmingham are a great club with an incredibly experienced coach at this level, a lot of experienced players At the moment they are also struggling with relegation a bit

“But I’m sure that with this quality of players and this experienced coach – I really appreciate Aitor Karanka – that they’ll end up in the middle of the table, I’m quite sure”

“Norwich is in the lead at the moment, but we are also confident after winning a game I see a football game like 11 players versus 11 players, whoever wants more can win the game Forget the reputation of a club, you just have to go out and win your individual battles, do what we do best and hope we get the three points “

Mario Vrancic scored a winner in the 87th minute after stubborn rearguard action from the visitors Brum midfielder Adam Clayton was sent off in the 86th minute and shortly after the Bosnian midfielder shot at home for a deserved victory
