Canaries looking to continue good form
Dmitri Halajko's side have suffered defeat just once in the previous four outings; a run that features wins over Manchester United and Southampton at Carrow Road, as well as a 0-0 draw with Liverpool.
The young City stars will have revenge in their sights, as Middlesbrough secured a comfortable 5-0 win at Colney in November.
Despite a keenly contested first half, the visitors took the lead shortly before the break before running rampant in the second half, thanks in part to a hat-trick from Bradley Fewster.
The Canaries are currently level on points with Middlesbrough in the Barclays U21s Premier League standings, but Boro hold two games in hand over Halajko's charges.
