The Canaries will play 46 games as they bid for promotion back to the Premier League, starting with a trip to bogey side Fulham on Saturday, August 5.

They will face another East Anglian derby double-header with arch rivals Ipswich Town, two long midweek trips north to Middlesbrough and Sunderland respectively, before it all comes to an end at Hillsborough against a Sheffield Wednesday side that has made the play-offs in the last two seasons.

City have been handed a tough opener in heading to Craven Cottage, where Norwich haven’t won since 1986 – that’s eight defeat in 10 visits.
