Norwich and Wolves will see the first Premier League meeting between the two clubs at Carrow Road as an opportunity to return to winning ways. Norwich have slipped down the table in recent weeks after a run of three defeats and one draw in their last four. They are 13 points above 18th-placed Bolton and victory this weekend would take them to 39 points, which is surely just about enough to ensure another season of top flight football at Carrow Road. Wolves have managed just one win in 2012 and have nine matches left to escape relegation, but as Terry Connor said after the heavy defeat to Manchester United last Sunday, they have been bottom of the league before and managed to avoid the drop. The Black Country outfit have conceded five goals in three of their last five Premier League games. Ominously for the away side, Wolves conceded five the last time that they played at Carrow Road, a 5-2 defeat in the Championship back in October 2008.
• Norwich are 16 points better off than they were after 29 games in their last Premier League season in 2004-05 and have three more points (36) than they managed in the whole of of that campaign (33).
• Wolves have not scored in their last three Premier League games. The last time they went four without a goal was March-April 2010.
