Fans can also buy tickets on the day from the same location from 2pm, and please note only card payments will be accepted.

Who’s Available?

Milutin Osmajić will once again be unavailable this weekend, although Ryan Lowe is hopeful the striker can feature against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday.

Long-term absentee Emil Riis is back in training but is seven to ten days away from being in contention for a matchday squad.

Brad Potts will be back after suspension, while Ali McCann will be pushing for a start after making his own return from injury in the last outing against Queens Park Rangers.

Opposition Focus


Norwich City head into the weekend on the back of three victories in their previous four matches, following a run of one win in the ten games previous.

With David Wagner at the helm, they have a man who’s earned promotion to the Premier League in the past with Huddersfield Town, and he then successfully kept them in the top flight against the odds.

He’s got a good mix of youth and experience at his disposal this term, trusting youngsters such as Jonathan Rowe and Adam Idah, together with Championship veterans Shane Duffy and Kenny McLean.

A Recent Clash

North End came out 3-2 winners in an entertaining clash against Norwich City last time out at Carrow Road in October 2022.
