The 2022/23 Championship playoff race looks set to be a fascinating one, with just five points separating third and 15th, and both Norwich and Watford are involved – looking to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking. Hosts Norwich go into this game just outside the playoffs, below sixth-placed Middlesbrough on goal difference having fallen away post-World Cup.

Although Norwich returned from the World Cup break with a 1-0 victory over Swansea, they are now winless in their pat three games, losing two and drawing one. First they weer beaten 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road before losing to 10-man Luton Town on Boxing Day, with the latter proving to be the last straw with regards to Dean Smith, who was sacked. The losing streak was stopped with a 1-1 draw with Reading, but Norwich are now winless at home in four matches.

Watford have also struggled post-World Cup with one win from four, but they have managed to stay in the  play-off spots as things stand, sitting fifth, one point above Norwich. Like Norwich, Watford are also under different management from the start of the season, though Slaven Bilic’s appointment came a lot earlier back in September.

In their first game back from the World Cup, Watford were held to a goalless draw by Hull City but they bounced back to beat Huddersfield Town, ending a two-match winless streak. But they have been unable to build on that win, losing their past two games without scoring, first beaten 2-0 by Millwall before a 4-0 thumping at the hands of Swansea.
