Norwich City now lay 10 points from the play-offs but it could have been so much better if they'd scored more goals at home. City come off the back of a 0-0 draw against the struggling Bolton and had their last scheduled game against Barnsley postponed due to the bad weather.

The travelling Canaries have had plenty of happy memories this season but fans seeing only Carrow Road performances have had less to cheer about. Its crucial that Daniel Farke and his side prove to fans that they can put on exciting performances and more importantly pick up home wins on a more regular basis.

Tonight they go up against a Nottingham Forest side tonight going into tonight with good form under their belts. Unbeaten in four and a win on Saturday against Birmingham. They sit just one place below City in 15th place.

The play-offs are still in sight but only just, a win tonight is crucial for Farke's side. If they do, then can they dare to dream?

Ipswich Town will be going into this with real confidence having won their last match away from home at Preston North End.

Much like Norwich, Ipswich had their last fixture against Hull City postponed due to the Beast from the East hitting Portman Road.

They sit above the Canaries in the league and a win at Hillsborough would take them six points from the play-offs. However McCarthy will know better than anyone that his side have been consistently inconsistent this campaign and will have to put that right if they're to mount a late charge.

Their opponents Sheffield Wednesday have found themselves dragged into a relegation fight after a horrific run of form winning just one of their last 10 games.

Mustapha Carayol was the man that fired Town to victory in their last league outing and the pacey winger will be hoping for another exciting display tonight.
