    Norwich v Swansea

    Tough one to call at Norwich today. Theyíve just been relegated but have kept most of their players, gambling on a quick return to the Premier League. Norwich are unbeaten in six games, Swans are unbeaten in five, could be a tight game.
    Swans are hoping key centre-back Ben Cabango recovers from a hamstring injury which saw him miss the Brentford draw last Tuesday where he pulled up in the pre-match warm up.
    Itís the two week International break coming up again. Not content with two competitive matches Wales and England amongst others, are squeezing in a friendly match as well, and itís not fair on our International players.
    Norwich have several players injured but have a big squad which every team needs in this condensed season with the three fixtures a week schedule

    FT Norwich 1-0

    Swans - if you don’t take your chances you don’t win the game
    Krul made three top class saves.
    Swans would have gone top with the win, instead they slump to 6th spot.

    Bitterly disappointing that. So many chances and we couldn’t put one of them away.
    Krul made three excellent saves, but with 17 shots we couldn’t score.
    We have a good squad capable of getting promotion but no recognised goal scorer.
    Ayew can’t do it on his own.
    Spend the two week break with the squad doing some shooting practice, it’s badly needed.

    Well Reading lost at home to Stoke 0-3, which set us up nicely to go top of the table with a win. We lost and drop to sixth, so disappointing, we just couldn't put the ball in the net. Their goalkeeper Krul saved them from defeat with three top saves, but we should feel aggrieved to come away with nothing. We can't score and it's a big problem with only one player capable of putting the ball in the net.
