No room at Elland Road

Norwich City's trip to Leeds is a sell-out for away fans - even though there will be thousands of empty seats at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon. Because of the configuration of the ground the Canaries were handed an allocation of just 1800 tickets for the game - and the last of those were snapped up yesterday afternoon.

Norwich City's trip to Leeds is a sell-out for away fans - even though there will be thousands of empty seats at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Because of the configuration of the ground the Canaries were handed an allocation of just 1800 tickets for the game - and the last of those were snapped up yesterday afternoon.

No extra space will be made available for City supporters, even though Leeds' 40,000 capacity home is likely to be a good deal less than three quarters full at the weekend.

A number of areas in the ground have been closed for much of the season due to disappointing crowds - and they won't be opened up for the benefit of the visitors.
