Norwich City are chasing their first home win of the Championship season when they take on struggling Derby this lunchtime - and you can follow all the updates, analysis and reaction from our reporters at Carrow Road.
The Canaries are yet to settle following relegation from the Premier League, due to transfer window distractions, with defender Ben Godfrey on the verge of becoming the second big sale of the season with a move to Everton worth a club record initial fee of £25million.
Daniel Farke’s team won 1-0 at Huddersfield on the opening weekend but had to fight back twice to earn a 2-2 draw with Preston in this first home match, before losing 1-0 at Bournemouth last Sunday - without Todd Cantwell and Emi Buendia as Farke felt both had been distracted by transfer speculation.
Carrow Road was able to welcome 1,000 season tickets back to the stadium for the Preston game, with social distancing and Covid-19 guidelines in place, but the government has since put the pilot projects for the return of crowds to stadiums on pause.
Derby arrive (12.30pm kick-off) having lost all three of their games so far, conceding eight goals and conceding just one, despite having England’s record goal-scorer Wayne Rooney in their squad.
