Here’s all the details for Blues’ trip to Norwich on Tuesday (August 9) night

Birmingham City are looking to continue their good start to the season when they take on fellow Championship side Norwich City in the EFL Cup on Tuesday (8 August).

John Eustace’s men will be looking to build on an impressive 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town on Friday evening. Two first half goals from Scott Hogan and Przemyslaw Placheta were enough to hand the Blues all three points in a well deserved win at St Andrew’s.Danny Ward scored a consolation just after the hour mark but away from a shakey few minutes following the goal, John Eustace’s men were comfortable and saw the game out in impressive fashion.

Eustace’s side will now travel to Carrow Road to take on Dean Smith’s men for a place in the second round of the cup.
