Fresh from Norwich City’s pre-match press conference ahead of their EFL Championship trip to Bristol City on Tuesday, Mustard sports editor Michael Bailey and Eastern Daily Press chief writer Paddy Davitt give their views from Colney.

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

With numerous frank exchanges, the pair addressed Cameron Jerome’s post-match comments following City’s thrashing to play-off rivals Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, the continuing fallout and what it all means for the rest of the season.

Norwich’s promotion hopes are all but over as they head to a Robins side that dropped into the bottom three at the weekend, and are in desperate need of a victory.

Kick-off is 7.45pm with no fresh injury worries for the City boss, while the game will come too soon for Nelson Oliveira.
