Liam Manning’s reign at Bristol City has been solid thus far but they will be aiming to move toward the play-off spots with a win over a struggling Norwich team.

The Canaries have lost five of their last seven games and after a lightning fast start to the season, have slid down the table to be two points behind the Robins before this clash.

Team News

Cameron Pring returns from a ban for Bristol City, who will be without Rob Atkinson, Ayman Benarous, Nahki Wells, Andy King and Haydon Roberts for this matchup.

Norwich have a more substantial injury list with Grant Hanley, Jacob Sorensen, Josh Sargent, Angus Gunn, Ben Gibson and Hwang Ui-Jo all missing out while Przemyslaw Placheta and Jonathan Rowe are doubts for this one.

Bristol City to win @ 6/5

Bristol City have opted for Manning as their new manager, and the former MK Dons boss is known for his attractive style of football, something that can take time to impress on a new group of players.

However, the early signs have been positive for the Robins, who have drawn with QPR before beating Middlesbrough 3-2.

They followed that with a narrow defeat against high-flying Southampton but they should be able to get the win in this game.

The hosts have won four of their last six home games and face a Norwich team that have lost five of their last seven in the league, increasing the pressure on manager David Wagner.

The Canaries have been leaky at the back, conceding 35 times in 18 games.

Compare that with Bristol City, who have allowed 19 goals in the same run and it’s not hard to see where this game may be won and lost, take the hosts to win this one.

Tommy Conway to score anytime @ 2/1

Bristol City have produced some fine young talents in recent years, with Bournemouth’s Alex Scott the prime example.

The next may be striker Tommy Conway, who has already made a big impression at just 21 years old.

Conway netted nine times last season and has scored three times in six starts this campaign.

Manning has clearly demonstrated his faith in the youngster, starting him in all three of the team’s games under the new manager and he is fancied to reward his boss with a goal in this game.
