Norwich City Under-23s will move to the top of Division Two if they can win at Fulham this evening in their latest Premier League Two fixture.

The Canaries’ development squad have won both of their home games 3-0 so far, against Reading and Crystal Palace, either side of a 3-0 loss at Aston Villa.

David Wright’s youngsters had help from senior players Josip Drmic, Moritz Leitner and Michael McGovern as they beat Palace at Colney on Monday, with Switzerland striker Drmic scoring a second U23 goal of the season as he continues to search for a new club.

Tonight it’s Fulham at Craven Cottage (7pm kick-off), who have won both of their matches so far to sit second ahead of Norwich on goal difference, with leaders Wolves a point clear but not in action this week.

The City U23s also won their EFL Trophy group stage opener 3-2 at Plymouth Argyle and continue when they travel to Newport County on Tuesday (7pm).
