Norwich City face a trip to Burnley at Turf Moor on Friday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Canaries will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them taste defeat on 9 occassions, and draw 4, from the 14 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was was two seasons ago, in April 2004, as the visitors ran out cosy 3 - 5 winners in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Burnley's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. Clarets have conceded a disappointing 8 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Norwich City's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Canaries have hit 6 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Burnley find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 43 points from their 38 matches. Norwich City's 53 points from 39 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position.
