Norwich City are ready to welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 9 of the 25 previous games, with the Canaries winning just 8.
The previous match played between the two at Carrow Road was more than three years back, in October 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 5-2 thriller, in a Championship match.
