Norwich City won back-to-back games for this first time since winning the Championship title in May 2019 when they took on Birmingham tonight - and you can follow all the action from Carrow Road in our Matchday Live blog.

The Canaries won 2-1 at Rotherham on Saturday thanks to an injury-time penalty from Jordan Hugill, having lost 1-0 to Bournemouth and Derby prior to the international break to move to within two points of the play-offs with five games played.

Next up for Daniel Farke’s team as they continue trying to shake off their Premier League relegation hangover, is the visit of Birmingam, who sit a point and five places behind City in 16th place.

The Blues, managed by former Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest boss Aitor Karanka, lost their first game of the season when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Sheffield Wednesday.

Prior to that they had won 1-0 at home to last season’s play-off finalists Brentford during the opening weekend and drawn 0-0 at Swansea, 1-1 at home to Rotherham and 1-1 at Stoke.
