History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Norwich City fixture

Norwich City pack their bags to visit Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 20 games played, Canaries have recorded 4 wins, and Sheff. Wed. have come away with 10 victories.

The previous match played between the two at Hillsborough was more than three years back, in February 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Sheffield Wednesday have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 in the wrong end.

The away form of Norwich City is pretty dire, managing a paltry 2 draws from the last six matches. While the Canaries have hit 4 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Sheff. Wed. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 42 points from 42 matches. Norwich City's 56 points from 42 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
