Live coverage of Norwich City’s pre-match press conference ahead of their fixture at Burton Albion.

Our reporters will bring you all the latest from Norwich City manager Alex Neil’s press conference as the Canaries prepare to face Burton Albion in the Championship at the Pirelli Stadium.

Norwich City head north unbeaten in six after a battling midweek 2-2 draw against title hopefuls Newcastle.

Burton boss Nigel Clough admits’ the visitors’ attacking threat is ‘scary’ although the Brewers’ chief is relishing the chance to send out a signal to their Championship relegation rivals at the Pirelli Stadium.

Clough said: “Norwich have just scored seven goals in two games and you look at some of their forward players and it is quite scary in this league. They had a Premier League squad last season but we will enjoy competing against them. We will have a go at them and we fancy playing anyone at the Pirelli. It will be a different experience for them from playing in front of 25,000 at Carrow Road so we are looking forward to it. The nature of the Championship means you can always cause an upset.”

  • Surrey: Wes looked knackered at the end on Tuesday so I would imagine Maddison is cover for a starting Pritchard. Possibly no bad thing... I just hope CJ's okay. We're stuffed without him.

  • Why oh why is Jacob "in the house" yet again? Why can't he simply be "at Colney"? It's such a childish and annoying misuse of the English language. And week after week after week someone is "in the house". No Mr Davitt, he isn't "in the house". He's turned up for a Press conference, whether you want to attempt to sex it up with outdated 1990s terminology or not. Please desist from the phrase, you make yourself sound like the poor lad's grandpappy.

  • If Maddison in squad then likely Wes or Pritchard carrying an injury.
