We said: Norwich City 2-1 Preston North End

Norwich have picked up results in recent weeks without being too convincing performance-wise, and we feel that Saturday's clash with Preston could follow a similar script. The Lilywhites are devoid of confidence following three-straight defeats, meaning we cannot imagine a positive result for the visitors at Carrow Road in this one. Read more.
