The Hatters go in search of a third straight victory tomorrow afternoon when they take on league leaders Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Following a well-earned midweek win versus Nottingham Forest, Town are on their travels once again looking to beat the Canaries for the third time this season.

Who?

Norwich were promoted to the Premier League as champions in 2019 but failed to survive in the top flight and finished 20th last season.

In the past ten years, the Canaries have spent five of those in the Premier League and their history extends beyond the 2000’s too.

They have won the League Cup twice in their history, first in 1962 and most recently in 1985 when they beat Sunderland 1-0 at Wembley Stadium.

 

The Manager – Daniel Farke

Daniel Farke took charge at Carrow Road in 2017 and led them to the Premier League two years later. Despite their immediate relegation back into the Championship, they are currently 10 points clear at the top of the table with the ambition of returning to the top flight straight away.

 

Main threat – Emiliano Buendia

Emiliano Buendia is amongst the most creative players in the division and his performances have helped Norwich assert themselves at the top of table.

Thus far, the Argentine has scored 10 goals and has 10 assists, of which one of those goals came against the Hatters during the two sides’ last meeting.

 

When and where?

Kick-off is 3pm at Carrrow Road on Saturday 6th March.

 

Man in the middle?

The referee for Saturday's match is David Webb - who recently took charge of the Hatters' 1-0 win against AFC Bournemouth.

 

Played before?

The Hatters have won the last three meetings in a row against Norwich City, the latest of which was a 3-1 win against the Canaries back in December.

James Collins scored a hat-trick in front of 1,000 home supporters and the highlights from that match are available to watch on YouTube below…
