Norwich vs Hull - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

Friday 17 January 2014

Under-pressure Norwich City boss Chris Hughton faces a critical game on Saturday as Hull City go to Carrow Road.

Hughton himself has described the game as ‘massive’, and with the Canaries just two points above the relegation zone, it is hard to argue with his assessment. The club’s supporters are becoming increasingly restless, and sections of the away support at Fulham on Tuesday in the FA Cup were chanting the name of Malky Mackay, so victory here is vital for Hughton to help silence the doubters.

Hull have been busy in the transfer market since their home defeat to Chelsea, as manager Steve Bruce looks to find a solution to their lack of goals. Nikica Jelavic has been signed, and he looks set to be followed by Shane Long, so owner Assem Allam has still been busy with his chequebook despite threatening to quit the club if he does not get his way in the club name change saga.

For Norwich, who will go level on points with their opponents if they win, Elliott Bennett, Jonathan Howson and Michael Turner are all unavailable due to injury, but Jonas Gutierrez could make his first appearance after joining from Newcastle United.

Jelavic could be handed his Hull debut, but the Tigers are unable to call upon injured trio Sone Aluko, Robbie Brady and Paul McShane.
