Norwich had to settle for a pair of Easter draws at home to Sheffield Wednesday and at Stoke respectively – but results elsewhere mean City need just one point against Rovers from their final home game of the season to confirm Premier League football come August.

Victory however will most likely be needed to maintain City's pole position in race for the Championship title, with Sheffield United kicking off at home to Ipswich Town at 5.15pm this evening.

Leeds also have to beat Aston Villa at home to stand any chance of finishing in the top two or making life for Norwich difficult if City stumble. They play Sunday lunchtime – but won't be able to catch the Canaries if they claim the point they need against Blackburn.

While Norwich are unbeaten in 12, Rovers arrive at Carrow Road off the back of four successive wins and secure in midtable.

Next up is City's final game of the campaign, when they head to play-off bound Villa on Sunday (12.30pm) – the Villans currently on a run of 1-0 successive victories heading to Elland Road.

Each and every Norwich City first-team game our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
