Premier League: Norwich v Wigan match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at Carrow Road
Despite their midweek defeat to Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup Norwich remain unbeaten in the Premier League in nine games, and will look to extend that run when they face Wigan this weekend.
The Canaries currently sit in 12th place on 22 points and just four points off Spurs in fourth.
Wigan slipped into the relegation zone in midweek due to Sunderland's win, and will be eager to pick up some points having dropped two at home to QPR last weekend.
The Latics will need to improve on their recent goalscoring record away from home as they have scored just two goals in their last six Premier League away trips.
KICK-OFF: Saturday, 3pm
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Norwich City 2 Wigan 0 (Svensson, Huckerby), Premier League, April 2004
Wigan Athletic 1 (Watson) Norwich 1 (Hoolahan), Premier League, August 2011
Norwich City 1 (Hoolahan) Wigan 1 (Moses), Premier League, March 2012
Wigan have conceded two or more goals in each of their last six Premier League games.
The Latics' last two Premier League away games have ended in 3-0 reverses.
Sébastien Bassong has now scored three goals in four Premier League appearances after only bagging two in his previous 94.
Norwich have lost just one of their last eight Premier League games at Carrow Road (W5 D2 L1) including winning the last four in a row.
In that run the Canaries have kept five clean sheets, conceding seven goals (five of them coming against Liverpool earlier in the season)
