Fresh from Norwich City’s pre-match press conference ahead of their crunch EFL Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday, Mustard sports editor Michael Bailey and Eastern Daily Press chief writer Paddy Davitt give their views from Colney.

Norwich City manager Alex Neil and Norwegian midfielder Alex Tettey were quizzed by our reporters and the rest of the gathered media, at the Canaries’ Colney Training Centre.

They chatted through the magnitude of Saturday’s game, as Norwich travel to their promotion play-off rivals and last season’s beaten finalists Sheffield Wednesday in Yorkshire.

Kick-off is at 3pm with no fresh injury worries for the City boss, and Nelson Oliveira approaching his return to full fitness.

The EFL Championship rivals shared a goalless draw at Carrow Road in the opening month of the season, Wednesday have lost back to back games as their play-off bid has briefly stalled.
