History of the Birmingham City v Norwich City fixture

Blues are ready to welcome Norwich City to St. Andrew's on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, having won 15 and lost only 5 of the 26 games played on home soil.

The previous match played between the two sides was within the last three years, in May 2002, where they shared the spoils in a 1-1 final scoreline in the Division One Play-Off Final in Cardiff. Blues went back to the top-flight with a 4-2 penalty shoot-out win at the Millenium Stadium that day.

Recent respective form guides

Blues' poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 hitting the wrong net.

The away form of Norwich City is pretty dire, attaining just 3 draws from the previous six away games. Canaries have conceded 10 goals in these games, and only hit 2 in reply.

Blues find themselves down in 14th position in the league having picked up 13 points from their 14 matches. Norwich City are stuck down in the relegation zone of the Barclays Premiership with a return of just 11 points from their 14 games thus far.
