The time for talking is almost over as the Canaries welcome local rivals Ipswich Town to Carrow Road for the East Anglian derby.
It is the first meeting between the two sides at the home of football for nearly two year, and City boss Paul Lambert will be watching from the stands after being handed a two-match touchline ban for comments made after the Reading game earlier this month.
The Tractor Boys come into the game on the back of three straight defeats with some supporters calling for the head of Agent Keane, and sit 16th in the Championship table - still only five points adrift of the play-offs.
City boss Paul Lambert (canaries.co.uk):
'I'm sure all the Norwich fans are looking forward to it and they'll want to get one over their nearest rivals and this is probably the closest derby there has been for a long while.
'But we've earned the right to put ourselves in a position to take them on, but at the same time also know how vital it is.'
Ipswich manager Roy Keane (itfc.co.uk):
'We know what the game means to the fans and it's a good opportunity for us to get back on track.
'It's a derby game and we all know what they are like. They are hard to predict and in a sense, form goes out of the window. That might be a good thing for us though because although the effort has been fine over the last three games, we have lost football matches.'

Looks to be getting back to the sort of form that allowed him to score goals for fun in League One last season.
