86
Cabaye's free-kick is dreadful and is again cleared.

86
Newcastle win a free-kick wide on the left as Bennett trips up Santon. Chance to get a good ball into the box.

84

80

78

Can substitute Grant Holt break the deadlock? He is the 10/1 favourite to open the scoring.

76
Norwich make another change as Elliott Bennett replaces Snodgrass.

75
Great save from Krul to deny Pilkington 12 yards out after Snodgrass played him on goal.

75
Catching practice for Bunn from Gutierrez's overhit cross.

70
Play is stopped as Marveaux is down and needs treatment - looks like cramp.

70
Debuchy combines with Cabaye, who puts a ball into the box but Bassong heads away well.

69
Norwich win corner, after good work from Pilkington and Williamson turns it behind. Pilkington takes, but Krul takes it easily.

67
Norwich make a change as Holt comes on for Jackson.

67
The closest we have come to a goal as Martin hits one on the volley and it comes back off the post.

64
Nice run from Marveaux and he fires in a rising shot which fails to trouble Bunn and goes over the crossbar.

63
Sight of goal for Pilkington as the ball drops to him on the edge of the box, but his effort is well over the top.

60
An hour gone and there have been so many passes overhit in this game it has been untrue.

56
Cabaye comes on for Obertan in the first change of the game.

54
Vital touch from Santon to stop Snodgrass getting through on goal from Tettey's pass.

53
Changes can't be too far away as the second half is following the same pattern as the first.

50
Good defending from Santon to block Hoolahan's pass towards Jackson.

48
Good chance for Norwich as Hoolahan tries to pick out Johnson inside the box, but Obertan clears the danger for a corner. The corner comes to nothing and is cleared.

46
No changes at the break from either side at half-time.

46
RESTART: Norwich get the second half underway and hopefully it is a better game than the first half offering.

Who can break the deadlock? Papiss Cisse in the 7/1 joint favourite along with Simeon Jackson while set-piece specialist Robert Snodgrass is 8/1. Norwich are the 6/4 favourites to claim the victory with Newcastle 11/4 while the draw is considered most likely now at 5/4.

45
HALF-TIME: The referee brings the first half to a close and in all honesty it has been a dull encounter so far.

Anita's corner is better than his last one, but is easily collected by Bunn.

Anita's corner sums this game up as he seems to catch the turf and the ball goes straight out of play.

36
Dangerous cross from Santon and Bassong slices it away for a corner to Newcastle.

34
Good free-kick in from Anita, but Norwich clear the danger through Martin.

31
Again the final ball lets Norwich down as Snodgrass makes a good run into the box, but his attempted pass to Hoolahan is poor and the chance goes abegging.

30
30 minutes gone and we have been short of entertainment so far.

29
Perch tries to get Cisse in on goal, but his pass is just overhit and runs out of play.

28
Snodgrass gets up to meet Hoolahan's high hanging cross, but his header is easily saved by Krul.

27
Norwich win another corner as Coloccini keeps out Snodgrass. Again the corner is poor and Santon clears the ball at the front post.

25
Good goalkeeping from Krul as he rushes from his line to collect the ball ahead of Jackson after Hoolahan tried to play in the striker.

20
Gutierrez is adjudged to have handled the ball inside the box just as he got ready to fire in a shot.

19
Jackson works a one-two with Hoolahan, but off balance the striker scoops his effort well over the top.

17
Good effort on the turn from Obertan, but Bunn produces a smart reaction save to keep out his effort.

16
Gutierrez tries a curler from wide on the left, but he gets his effort horribly wrong and it sails well wide of the target.

15
Pilkington's cross from the right is inviting, but no one can get on the end of it and Krul collects for Newcastle.

14
Good play by Hoolahan down the left, but his cross is cleared by Santon. Norwich starting to pen Newcastle back in their own half now.

13
Good run from Gutierrez down the left and his cross towards Cisse is just overhit and the ball runs away to safety.

12
Bit of pressure from Norwich as Pilkington beats Debuchy down the right, but his cross is cleared by Williamson.

10
Ten minutes gone and there has been very little goalmouth action with both sides just sparring with each other in the early stages.

9
Very little sign of Debuchy getting forward at the minute with both side's struggling to create too much in the final third.

6
Snodgrass's free-kick delivery is poor and is easily cleared by Gutierrez. Wasted opportunity for Norwich.

6
Norwich win a free-kick wide on the left after Snodgrass is fouled by Coloccini.

Having failed to win away from home in the league all season, Newcastle are a big price at 12/5 to win at Carrow Road, with the hosts 11/10 favourites. Despite scoring three times in their last home game, Norwich average just over one goal per game at home, so it's difficult to foresee too many goals in this one - Sky Bet are expecting under 2.5 goals (Evens).

If you fancy a flutter on today's game check out the latest odds with our betting partners SkyBet.

Norwich are missing Grant Holt through injury meaning Simeon Jackson will start in attack.

Fabricio Coloccini starts for Newcastle despite widespread speculation over his future, while Mathieu Debuchy makes his debut for his new club.

Newcastle XI: Krul; Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon; Perch, Anita; Obertan, Marveaux, Gutierrez; Cisse.

Norwich XI: Bunn, Martin,, Bassong, Turner, Garrido; Pilkington, Johnson, Tettey, Snodgrass, Hoolahan; Jackson
