Norwich City will bag their first win of the new Premier League season in December when they play Sheffield United at home, today’s fixture list reveals.
The Canaries must wait until nearly Christmas before playing the fellow Premier minnows.
Fans will now be hoping the Carrow Road club picks up enough draws before then to keep them off the bottom of the table.
The Sheffield United fixture on December 7 is already the big “six-pointer” of the season and will define who finishes bottom of the Premier League this coming season.
Football fixture consultant Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “Norwich fans might have hoped to face Sheffield United earlier in the season to get that first win under their belt.
“But the fixture list computer can be a cruel mistress. At least fans will only have to wait until March for the away game at Bramall Lane and a shot at a second win of the season.”
