Norwich City will be bidding to make it six wins in a row when they take on Derby County in the Championship on Wednesday evening.
The last time they achieved this feat was under Alex Neil in 2015 when the Scot galvanised an under performing squad and took them to promotion at Wembley.
A 4-0 win over Blackpool in February kicked off the run as Gary Hooper bagged a hat-trick before City edged a five-goal thriller at The Valley as Cameron Jerome’s late winner ensured three points.
Goals from Bradley Johnson and Lewis Grabban then saw off Wolves at home before City eased to an impressive 3-0 win at Watford. Johnson’s late winner then saw off Blackburn at Ewood Park and the midfielder was at it again in the 2-0 win over Ipswich at the start of March. Grabban got the other goal.
Three days later City’s run came to a halt at home to Wigan thanks to Kim Bo-Kyung’s goal although the Canaries would only lose once more that season to Middlesbrough, who they of course later beat in the play-off final.
