Two sides who felt the punch of relegation in the 2019-20 season come face to face this weekend in the Championship. Bournemouth play host to Norwich City at the Vitality Stadium. The match schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 3 pm.
The Canaries and Cherries seem to be settling well with life in the Championship. The two sides have recorded four points in their last two encounters in the championship. Bournemouth comes off a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup tie in the midweek fixture.
Even with a fairly changed starting IX, Josh Tindall was pessimistic with the chances of their team pulling off a win against the Citizens. The newly appointed managed pushed the game but unfortunately lost 2-1.
Even with the transfer window open, Tindall might cherish the young crop of talents showing talent and promise ahead of the new assignment. The Cherries hold a chance of promotion given they cling on to their high profile players. The side recently lost Callum Wilson to Newcastle and Nathan Ake to Man City.
Norwich City aims to retain their squad ahead of the new assignment for head coach Daniel Farke. Jamal Lewis remains on top of the list for the big summer move at the Carrow Road. Farke remains silent in the transfer window despite receiving backing from the board. Ten days remain before the closure of the window.
