NORWICH CITY- WYCOMBE WANDERERS
Over 25,000 supporters arrived at Carrow Road to witness Norwich destroy tiny Colchester on the opening day of the season, unfortunately they were four down inside 23 minutes and eventually lost 7-1!
That cost boss Bryan Gunn his job just two games into the season and City turned to Colchester chief Paul Lambert as his replacement. Lambert is far more tactically astute than Gunn and should be able to make the most, of what remains a decent squad at this level. He will be desperate to start with a win and faces an opponent he knows well, having been in charge at Wycombe for two seasons. Wanderers are having defensive problems of their own and following promotion, have yet to keep a clean sheet, conceding eight in just four starts.
Lambert watched his team at Brentford in midweek, before officially taking charge and the Canaries pretty much controlled the first half and were unlucky to lose by the odd goal in three, probably deserving at least a share of the spoils. He will have seen plenty to give him hope and there is no reason why City cannot get into the playoff picture. Home win.
