Coventry City predicted team vs Norwich CityCoventry City are desperate to get their season back on track after contrasting fortunes either side of the World Cup break. The Sky Blues were absolutely flying before the month-long mid-term international pause after taking an impressive 22 points from a possible 27 that saw them finish with a four game winning run. Since the start-back, however, Mark Robins’ men have managed just one win and taken a measly six points from a possible 21, and faced the embarrassment of being dumped out of the FA Cup by non-league Wrexham. There were shoots of recovery at Burnley at the weekend when City ran the league leaders close, and had they taken their excellent chances they might well have come away with a shock win in a performance that deserved at least a draw but resulted in a 1-0 defeat.

As such, it’s fairly safe to assume Panzo will return on the left of the central defensive trio with Callum Doyle at the heart and Michael Rose on the right. That leaves a straight decision between Fankaty Dabo and Arsenal loan man Brooke Norton-Cuffy for the right wing-back slot, while Jake Bidwell will be favourite to operate on the left, albeit Manchester City loan man Josh Wilson-Esbrand will hopefully have shaken off a swollen knee to ensure he’s in contention for selection.
Ben Wilson was restored between the sticks at Turf Moor following Simon Moore passing up his opportunity to impress in the FA Cup, so his position appears to be pretty safe. Robins, meanwhile, switched to a back four last time out to accommodate the fact that Jonathan Panzo was suspended. But with the Forest loan defender available to face the Canaries, it’s expected that the manager will revert to his tried and trusted back three with wing-backs.

City’s substitute options look set to be pretty minimal for the second week running, with Liam Kelly the only experienced head to call upon unless Dabo starts on the bench. Elsewhere, development striker Danny Cashman could be included in the matchday squad after being recalled from a disappointing loan spell at Walsall in an otherwise fresh-faced bench that is likely to include the likes of Jack Burroughs and Ryan Howley. Predicted City team vs Norwich: Ben Wilson; Michael Rose, Callum Doyle, Jonathan Panzo; Brooke Norton-Cuffy, Gustavo Hamer, Ben Sheaf, Jake Bidwell; Kasey Palmer, Jamie Allen; Viktor Gyokeres.
Given the level of opposition, however, it might be asking too much to pitch in two youngsters in such key roles. The central pair pick themselves with Gus Hamer and Ben Sheaf City’s strongest midfield duo, while Kasey Palmer and Jamie Allen will be expected to operate at the top of the midfield box behind lone striker Viktor Gyokeres – the Swede still the only fit and available senior striker at the club as Matty Godden and Tyler Walker continue their rehab from long-term injuries.
