Capital One Cup: Norwich v Bury match preview
A look ahead to tonight’s Capital One Cup second round fixture at Carrow Road
Tuesday 27 August 2013
Two-time League Cup winners Norwich will allow some fringe-players game time as Chris Hughton looks to rotate his squad following their defeat to Hull on Saturday. That could mean Gary Hooper will feature as he continues to find fitness after an injury in pre-season.
Bury have been refused permission to play on-loan Jordan Sinnott in the League Cup by his parent club Huddersfield, although fellow loan signings Anthony Forrester and Danny Mayor could feature for Kevin Blackwell’s side in a game which sees the teams meet for the first time since Bury defeated the Canaries in an FA Cup third round replay in 2008.
KICK-OFF: Tuesday, 7.45pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Bury 2 (Futcher, Bishop), Norwich 1 (Dublin), FA Cup, January 2008
Norwich 1 (Doherty) Bury 1 (Bishop), FA Cup, January 2008
Bury 0 Norwich 2 (Bellamy, Fleming), Football League Division 1, February 1999
Norwich and Bury have played 34 times, with Norwich winning a total of 15 encounters compared with Bury’s 12.
Norwich are still awaiting their first win of the season.
Norwich to win: 1.31
Bury to win: 12
