Norwich City v Sunderland: O'Neill targets three points on Carrow Road return


Bookmark and Share

Norwich v Sunderland

Martin O'Neill returns to Carrow Road this afternoon and the Sunderland boss will be desperate to ease his Black Cats relegation fears with a victory here. In order to do that though, O'Neill will have to do something no manager has managed in eight games . . . beat Norwich!

The Canaries started the season in terrble form, but in recent weeks they have looked much more assured. At one stage they were conceding goals galore. Then they beat Arsenal 1-0 and they haven't looked back. No team has managed to score more than one goal against them, but Ruddy's injury could derail that.

Sunderland have won only one of their past nine outings and haven't won at Carrow Road in the league for 27 years. It's looking like it could be a black Christmas for the Black Cats but victory here would go some way to lightening the mood.

Martin O'Neill was a player and a manager at Norwich City but there will be no room for sentiment. He needs the points and will be looking to record back-to-back away wins. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of love for that.
