Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke on squad management and Wycombe's bravery

It's a Sunday lunchtime kick-off for Norwich City as they look to maintain their grip on the SkyBet EFL Championship title race.

Their lead at the top could be cut by the time they face Wycombe Wanderers, but Head Coach Daniel Farke is concentrating on what his team can do at Adams Park to maintain their promotion push.

And Wycombe's 1-0 victory over Reading, finishing with ten men, is a reminder of what a threat they still pose despite sitting bottom and eight points short of safety.

Todd Cantwell misses the trip to Adams Park but Farke hopes he can shake-off the calf problem in time for their midweek meeting with Brentford on Wednesday (March 3).

Ahead of Norwich's Sunday encounter, Luton Town have a chance to address their recent form, which has cause a ripple of concern among supporters.

A stoppage time equaliser by Millwall last time out denied the Hatters their first league home win since late December.

But manager Nathan Jones says they're in a better position points-wise compared to the same stage last season, as they prepare for Sheffield Wednesday's visit.

Takeover speculation has overshadowed the thoughts of Ipswich Town supporters ahead of Saturday's League One encounter with promotion rivals Doncaster Rovers.

'The Athletic' reports that Town's owner Marcus Evans is braced for a possible deal to sell to a consortium of American investors, led by Los-Angeles based businessman Brett Johnson. They also speculate that manager Paul Lambert would be replaced by former Wigan boss Paul Cook.

With the Blues insisting Mr Evans is not actively looking to sell the club, the news has been cautiously welcomed by Ipswich supporters and podcaster Joe Fairs.

Meanwhile Lambert is hoping Town can build on the midweek win at Hull to keep pace in the promotion play-off race, and looks to the developing partnership between James Norwood and on-loan Tottenham striker Troy Parrott.

League One leaders Peterborough United bid for a sixth straight win, while improving the best home record in the division.

Manager Darren Ferguson says the prospect of their opponents Wigan possibly heading to League Two would be 'a disaster' considering their recent Premier League status.

But Ferguson hopes the positive atmosphere generated within the dressing room will lead to a twelfth home league win.
