Norwich v Bristol City

Facts from the BBC:

Norwich have won 30 and Bristol City 20 of the 65 previous matches between these clubs.

The Canaries are three goals away from their 100th against the West Country club.

Norwich have won half of their home league games this season (nine of 18).

Norwich have scored in each of the last eight league games, and failed to net in only one of 15.

Only two of Bristol City's six away league victories this season have been against top-half clubs (Swansea and Watford).
