The Canaries suffered a heavy defeat at home to early Championship leaders Leeds United on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Cardiff earned a goalless Premier League draw at Huddersfield on their return to the top flight this season.
They are yet to score a goal this season – although they will have former City forward Josh Murphy to call on following his £10m summer switch, and Norwich fans won’t need telling how much he enjoys the League Cup.
City follow their trip to Wales with the first East Anglian derby of the season on Sunday, when Daniel Farke’s squad face Ipswich Town at Portman Road (12pm) for Paul Hurst’s first experience of the fixture since being named Town boss in the summer.
Winless Town currently sit bottom of the Championship table, and have not beaten Norwich since April 2009 – 10 derbies ago.
That is the final action before the first international break of the season, after which City return with a visit from Tony Pulis’ high-flying Middlesbrough on Saturday, September 15 (3pm).
Each and every Norwich City first-team game, our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
