PREVIEW: Norwich vs Middlesbrough

As the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League continues with just four points separating the top four teams, Norwich City host Middlesbrough in the Friday night football.

Norwich have won eight of their last eleven Championship games to put them in contention for an instant return to the Premier League. The arrival of Alex Neil as manager seems to have been a masterstroke as the former Hamilton boss has an incredible win percentage of 73.68% since taking over from Neil Adams in January.

Visitors Middlesbrough have enjoyed a successful season so far with on-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford on a goalscoring run which has seen him score seven goals in his last nine games. Aitor Karanka’s side have relied on their home form to get them into promotion contention after picking up just one win in their last seven away games.
