Match preview: Norwich City U23s v West Bromwich Albion U23s

For the first time this season, Norwich City are playing under the lights of King's Lynn Town's stadium, the Walks, as they host West Bromwich Albion this Monday (7pm KO).

In our match preview, we'll be taking a look at the Baggies going into this game, hearing from U23s forward Jon Rowe and seeing how fans can follow the game live.

The opposition

Taking nine points from a possible 15, it's been an impressive season so far for West Brom.

Tallying those nine points up from three wins and two losses, it's been one end of the scale for the Baggies in their five games so far, having only lost to league leaders Fulham and third-place Aston Villa.

It's been a slightlier busy schedule for the midlands club early on this season, having already played two of their Premier League Cup group stage games, City only playing one up until now.

Their nine points puts them eighth in the Premier League 2 table, which the Baggies will feel doesn't represent their performances on the pitch so far this campaign.

City will be full of confidence heading into this game against West Brom, having still only taken one loss this season to Stoke City.

Sitting second in the league and only three points behind Fulham with a game in hand, Monday will be a big clash for the younng Canaries in propping themselves higher up the table.
