Daniel Farke inexplicably made SIX changes to the side that won at Birmingham as he rolled the dice, presumably looking to save players to try to get a home win on Monday. As it turned out, we saw a drab affair between two sides that cancelled each other out. James Husband was adjudged to have dived in the first half when put through and was shown a yellow card and Burton got their first clean sheet at home in NINE months. City didn`t have a shot on target until 76 minutes after Pritchard and Maddison were finally brought on. A turgid affair with the travelling Canary faithful deserving so much better. OTBC

Understand that Farke needed to rest players, and made six changes in view of the Millwall game. BUT playing Oliveira??? Surely Jerome - full of running and pressure- is more suited to the objective of a drab draw at Perelli Stadium?

Now it is daunting to have the prospect of Jerome leading the line against Millwall in 2 days time. Wow wow wow. “The load on Oliveira is a bit high. Too many games over this period so he need a rest”. Sounds all too familiar.

I do not understand the 6 changes. DF should have gone for a win , got the relatively easy 3 points on offer and worried about Millwall game later. The season has gone so horribly wrong Norwich are happy with a draw at Burton !!!! and worried about playing Millwall at home !!! Both sides were at least 2 divisions lower on a couple of years ago. As for playing Jerm1ssome. An injured Grandmother stuffed with sherry is more likely to score. League 1 here we come.
