Norwich and Brentford met for the first time ever in a top flight match earlier this season, with the former sealing a 2-1 victory on that occasion back in November for what was actually their first victory of the campaign.

The Canaries have had a couple of decent patches of form since then, although three recent defeats on the spin has sent them back to the foot of the table.

The Bees, meanwhile, have only won one Premier League game since the turn of the calendar year and that was back on 2 January. The only point they have taken since then came in a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace four weeks ago, resulting in a slide down the table.

This is everything you need to know about the game...

Norwich team news & predicted lineup

Canaries full-backs Max Aarons and Brandon Williams have overcome knocks that ruled them out of the last game but should return here.

Ozan Kabak remains a doubt with a shoulder problem, while Adam Idah is a long-term absentee.

Predicted lineup: Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; McLean, Gilmour, Rupp; Sargent, Pukki, Rashica

Brentford team news & predicted lineup

Josha Dasilva has only recently returned from long-term injury but is suspended as a result of his red card last time out.

Brentford are otherwise pretty much at full strength, with only long-term absentees Tarique Fosu-Henry and Julian Jeanvier also missing.

Predicted lineup: Raya; Ajer, Jansson, Pinnock; Canos, Baptise, Norgaard, Janelt, Henry; Toney, Mbeumo

Norwich vs Brentford score prediction

This has all the makings of a classic relegation 'six-pointer'.

The Canaries have started to show signs of life in recent weeks, while the Bees have been dragged into the relegation scrap because of their poor form - Brentford's eight losses in all competitions in 2022 is an unwanted record among Premier League clubs.

Prediction: Norwich 1-1 Brentford
