MATCH PREVIEW: Norwich v Swans

7th November 2015

The Swans go in search of back-to-back away wins when they face Norwich at Carrow Road on Saturday (3pm).
Garry Monk's side head to Norfolk on the back of last weekend's 3-0 home defeat against in-form Arsenal.
But the Swans were victorious the last time they went on their travels - a 2-1 success away at Aston Villa a fortnight ago.
They now face a Norwich side who sit three places and four points below Swansea in 16th, with the Canaries searching for a first win in five league games.
But Norwich have enjoyed a good record against the Swans in recent seasons, with the visitors not winning at Carrow Road since a 3-2 victory in 2009.

Norwich boss Alex Neil: "We've got to try and find ways of winning games. Playing philosophy and how you want to go about it is all fine and well, but winning games is the most important thing.
"It's about making sure we get those points on the board, and we need to find a way of doing that. 

Swans boss Garry Monk: "It's not going to be easy, there are no easy games and these teams make it hard to play like we did against Arsenal.
"But it's about the attitude we showed against Arsenal. You could sense there was something about us, especially in the first half.
"Our intentions were good, and it's now about keeping it that way. We have to focus on doing that and producing that kind of performance in the games we have coming up."
