West Bromwich Albion are back in Championship action on Saturday as they head to Carrow Road to take on Norwich City.

The Baggies have made a disappointing start to the season and matters were only worsened as local rivals Birmingham City beat them 3-2 on Wednesday evening.

Birmingham striker Scott Hogan scored a hat-trick in the game which saw West Brom lose for the second time this campaign.

Two losses in the Baggies’ nine matches may not sound too bad, but when it’s added that they’ve drawn six and won just the one, it makes for poor reading.

Steve Bruce’s side are struggling down in 20th position in the Championship table, above the relegation zone on goal difference.

A win this weekend is therefore very much needed to boost spirits, but it won’t be easy as Norwich have recorded six successive league victories.

The Canaries have been in fine form and are just one point behind table-toppers Sheffield United, who have also been flying in recent weeks.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Norwich vs West Brom, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch the game on UK television.

What is the team news ahead of Norwich vs West Brom?

Central defender Semi Ajayi was injured against Wigan Athletic two weeks ago and remains sidelined with what is reportedly a long-term knee and ankle problem.

Deadline day signing and ex-Liverpool defender Martin Kelly is yet to play but could be in line for his Baggies debut against Norwich.

Meanwhile, Brandon Thomas-Asante may get the nod in attack over Karlan Grant after scoring off the bench against Birmingham.

Is Norwich vs West Brom on TV and how can I watch it?

Norwich vs West Brom has been selected for a 3pm kick-off time on Saturday 17 September and so it won’t be shown live on UK television.

This is to comply with the ‘blackout’ regulation on televised coverage between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday.

Under the rules, broadcasting rights are restricted for clubs in the UK, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man.

Not all is lost, though, as highlights will be available for Sky Sports subscribers on the Sky Sports app around 15-30 minutes after the final whistle.
