Saints travel to Norfolk with their playoff place confirmed after last week's victory over Stoke City, but a shot at the title is still in reach with several permutations still at play.

At Staplewood a week ago, Tino Livramento made his long awaited return from injury in a 2-0 victory which came after second half goals from James Bree and Dom Ballard.

The result put Saints second in the table with one game to play, but since then Nottingham Forest have leapt to the top of the league after winning their final game of the season.

A victory over Norwich would move Saints top of the table and guarantee their second place finish, but the title and automatic promotion is not out of reach if Leeds fail to win both of their remaining two games.

Norwich are looking likely to just miss out on the playoffs as they are three points behind with one game to play and a five-goal gap to claw back.

They are guaranteed a sixth place finish however, despite successive defeats against Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

In their last outing, the Canaries played out a seven-goal thriller away to Newcastle as they came back from three goals down only to lose 4-3 on the road on Tyneside.


Earlier this season, in a tight affair at Snows Stadium it ended 1-1 in the first meeting between the two sides.

Jake Vokins opened the scoring in the first half before Abu Kamara levelled the game with ten minutes to go.


Norwich have made free tickets available for supporters to claim online for the fixture at Carrow Road.


After Saints clinched their playoff finish against Stoke, Lee Skyrme shared his thoughts ahead of Sunday's final league clash:

"We go out every game trying to win it and Norwich will be another brilliant challenge for us, we'll give it out best shot to win the game and see where [the league] goes from there.

"More so because of where we sit within the club though, things like [the playoff race] will help us come away with a better player with more of an understanding of the game."
