The Canaries left it late to beat ten-men Rotherham United at the weekend, with Jordan Hugill’s 95th minute penalty securing his side’s first win since the opening weekend to take them to within two points of a play-off position.

Birmingham, meanwhile, were beaten for the first time in the league this season in a 1-0 home defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. They had won one and drawn three of their opening four matches.

The hosts are odds-on favourites at 8/11 to win this match, with the draw 13/5. Aitor Karanka’s side are 4/1 underdogs to secure an away win.

Hugill’s brace at Rotherham should ensure the 2018/19 Championship top goalscorer Teemu Pukki remains on Norwich’s bench, unless Daniel Farke chooses to bring the Finland international back into the fold in place of academy graduate Adam Idah.

Pukki is 13/10 (bet365) to score anytime, with Hugill 9/5 (Betfair) and Idah 9/4 (Betway). All three are off the mark this campaign, so Farke certainly has plenty of options at his disposal.

Lukas Jutkiewicz missed the Blues’ defeat to Sheff Wed through illness but may recover in time for the trip to Carrow Road. Karanka admitted his side desperately missed the striker’s presence, so he will certainly be pushing for the 31-year-old’s return.

Should Jutkiewicz make it, he’s 10/3 (Betfair) to score anytime, with strike partner Scott Hogan 7/2 (Betfair). Both are yet to open their goalscoring accounts this season, with Jeremie Bela top goalscorer on two goals. The winger is 11/2 (bet365) to score.

None of Karanka’s side’s matches this season have seen more than two goals scored, with the Blues failing to score or concede more than once in a match.

Like Norwich, who have scored five and conceded five, they have a neutral goal difference with three goals and three conceded.

I can envisage a pretty tight, scrappy affair, then. Once again, I can’t see Birmingham scoring more than once, while I do expect a superior Norwich side to score despite Karanka’s sides generally being very good defensively as their record this season shows.

Utilising bet365’s Bet Builder feature, I will add Under 2 Goals for Birmingham and Over 0 Goals for Norwich.

This way we are covering a 1-1 draw, which is the most likely result should Norwich fail to win.

With referee Oliver Langford officiating this one, I am also more than happy to add Over 0 Cards for each team to receive total odds of 21/20.

Langford has shown each team at least one card in 18 of his last 20 Championship matches, while Norwich and Birmingham have both picked up at least one card in all of their league matches so far this season.

Ivan Sunjic and Adam Clayton have picked up two yellow cards each for the visitors and can be backed at 9/4 (Sky Bet) and 3/1 (bet365) respectively to make it third time unlucky.
