All you need to know: Stoke City v Norwich City

21 April 2019

Norwich City will be back in action on the Easter Monday as they face Stoke City at the Bet 365 stadium (kick-off 3pm).

The Canaries go into the game on the back of a draw against Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road, while Stoke suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Middlesbrough last time out.

Here’s all you need to know ahead of kick-off:

Getting to the stadium

The postcode for the Bet 365 stadium is ST4 4EG. For directions from Carrow Road, CLICK HERE.

Car parking at the stadium costs £5. There are still some parking spaces at various commercial sites between the old Michelin car park and the site of the old Victoria Ground – a 20 minute walk from the stadium.

Shuttle buses are run pre and post-match for supporters going to and from the stadium, and a timetable can be found HERE. The closest train station is two miles from the stadium.

Ticket information

Tickets are sold out for the game, however fans can still buy tickets to watch the live beamback at Carrow Road. CLICK HERE to buy online, or visit the ticket office from 11am on Monday. 

Meet the opposition

Stoke currently sit 16th in the table, 12 points above the drop zone with 52 points, meaning they are safe from relegation.

The Potters lost against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium last time out, with Britt Assombalonga’s goal two minutes in giving the North East side the three points.

City come up against a Stoke side who have won just one of their last eight games in the league, with their only win coming against Blackburn Rovers at the start of April. However, they have drawn five of those games, with four ending goalless.

Manager Nathan Jones was appointed in January this year, after a successful period with Luton Town guiding them to promotion from League Two last season.

Stoke have scored 41 goals this season, the league’s third least amount, but have the best defensive record within the bottom half, conceding just 48 goals, three less than the Canaries.

The last time the two sides played each other was back in October, when Timm Klose’s 36th minute own goal proved to be the difference between the two sides.
