Martin Jol’s side travel to Carrow Road.
Locked together on 28 points from 25 games, both Chris Hughton and Martin Jol know that a couple of wins would help banish any lingering relegation fears. That is easier said than done when Norwich have not managed a league victory since before Christmas, while Fulham’s season has yet to return to the heights of their 5-0 thrashing of the Canaries on the opening day last August. Grant Holt’s lack of goals (one in his last 17 games) has not helped their cause, and the captain finding his form would be timely.
