When they host recently promoted Wigan Athletic on Saturday, Norwich City will look to earn their first points of the year.
The Canaries lost to Cardiff City by a razor-thin margin in their season opener, while Preston North End and Wigan drew 0-0.

Tips and Prediction
Norwich, who spent one season in the Premier League before moving down to the Championship, wants to join the top level right away.
However, their promotion push did not get off to the best of starts after a 1-0 away loss to Cardiff City last weekend.
The Bluebirds took the lead early in the second half thanks to a goal from Romaine Sawyers, and although Cardiff was reduced to 10 men in the 73rd minute, Grant Hanley’s dismissal 12 minutes later prevented Norwich from tying the score.
Norwich will play at home for the first time this season this weekend when they take on Wigan Athletic after failing to gain anything from their trip there last Saturday.
The Canaries concluded their promotion-winning season in 2019–20 with the second-best home record in the league; if they are to receive automatic promotion this term, a similar record may be necessary. Wigan’s first goal this season will be to maintain their Championship position, while their hosts are hoping to return to the League.
Leam Richardson will be aware that his team has a lot to climb if they are to avoid relegation this season, despite the Latics’ storming to Premier League One title last year.
With the home game against Preston concluding in a scoreless draw, they were able to get their season started to a steady start.
The Latics will attempt to score their first goal this weekend after already recording a clean sheet.
They haven’t defeated Norwich in their previous four meetings, so they’ll need to play at the top of their game to secure their first victory of the year.
We believe the hosts will utilize home advantage for the first time this season to edge over Wigan on Saturday, despite the fact that they would have been dissatisfied with the outcome against Cardiff.
