One Wednesday night, a massive Championship fixture will take place between the league’s top two sides. First-place Norwich City host second-place Brentford in a six-point fixture in the race for Premier League promotion. The Canaries head into the matchday 34 game in fantastic form.

Norwich City vs Brentford Team News

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke could have four players missing this week for the matchday 34 game versus Brentford. Sam Byram is ruled out until March with a hamstring injury. He is joined on the sideline by Michael McGovern. The goalkeeper is ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. Midfielder Marco Stiepermann could return to the team for the match after suffering a head injury.

Farke is likely to be without influential midfielder Todd Cantwell. The in-demand midfielder will be a huge loss if he isn’t able to make the team for the top of the table clash. Cantwell has three goals and three assists in 21 Championship games in 2020-21.

Frank has three players on the Brentford injury list ahead of the trip to Carrow Road on Wednesday night. Full-back Rico Henry could miss the game and be out until mid-March due to a hamstring injury. Shandon Baptiste is also a doubt for the game. The midfielder has a knee injury. He is nearing a return to the squad this month. Defender Pontus Jansson could be available for the game following an ankle injury.

Brentford striker Ivan Toney is in great form and is coming off of scoring his 25th goal of the league season against Stoke City. Toney now has 25 goals in 32 Championship matches.
