David Wagner may have been pessimistic about Norwich’s chances of defeating Blackburn in the FA Cup after a lack of preparation time with his new squad.

The Canaries ultimately lost to a first-half goal from Jack Vale, extending their winless streak in all competitions to five games.

Norwich has netted just six goals in nine matches, highlighting the main area of concern for Wagner as he now considers ways to galvanize this group of players.

Most of their setbacks have come at Carrow Road, and the East Anglian side will make the trip to Preston, having won two of their last three away fixtures.

Preston North End manager John Beckwith will be delighted with his team’s start to the year, having scored three times in the final half-hour to defeat Huddersfield Town 3-2 after coming from behind.

The result followed a 1-0 victory at Stoke City and moved Preston into fourth place in the table. North End is used to mid-table obscurity, but victory at Deepdale on Saturday could potentially move them level on points with Watford, who occupy fourth place.

However, North End need to sort out their form at home, having lost three consecutive games in the second tier.

Preston North End vs. Norwich City Head to head

Both sides have 14 games against each other with the hosts taking five wins while the visitors with four wins, and five wins.

Preston North End could hand an immediate debut to Liam Delap, who has left his loan spell at Stoke City to join the Lilywhites. That move is in response to Emil Riis Jakobsen being sidelined with a knee injury.

Norwich City Team News

Wagner will likely make a few changes to the Norwich XI that started the Blackburn game, with Kieran Dowell and Daniel Sinani both in contention for recalls. Sam McCallum may return at left back, but Isaac Hayden remains sidelined, and Todd Cantwell is unlikely to come back into contention.
