Norwich City will host Millwall at Carrow Road on Friday in an effort to make it two victories in a row in the Championship.
Tuesday saw Dean Smith’s team record their first league victory of the year after a sluggish start, while the visitors pulled off a thrilling draw at Swansea City to go onto seven points after four games.

Norwich City vs Millwall Tips and Prediction
Dean Smith’s team lost their opening match on the road against Cardiff City, and they were only able to draw with newly promoted Wigan Athletic at home the next week to earn a point each.
The Canaries traveled to Hull City at the weekend hoping to build on their EFL Cup first round victory over Birmingham City in a penalty shootout following a 2-2 draw in regulation time. However, Marcelino Nunez’s goal was not enough to spark a comeback after Oscar Estupinan had given their hosts a lead.
Smith’s team, still seeking their first three-point haul of the season, finally achieved success on Tuesday, defeating Huddersfield Town at Carrow Road. Goals from Joshua Sargent and Danel Sinani gave Norfolk a lead early on, which they held onto for the final 10 minutes after Pat Jones’ goal.
Smith and his players will be hoping Tuesday’s triumph acts as a turning point after their sluggish start and will want to make it back-to-back wins at home on Friday to start a rise up the division.
However, they are in for a challenge as Millwall, who finished ninth last season, visit having made a rather promising start to the new season under Gary Rowett.
Charlie Cresswell’s two goals helped the Lions defeat Stoke City at home to start the season, but they would later lose at Sheffield United on the road and exit the EFL Cup.
Jake Cooper and George Honeyman pulled Rowett’s team even before George Saville scored the game-winning goal in the 85th minute to help them defeat Coventry City at The Den.
Tuesday saw Millwall return to action as they traveled to Swansea City. Despite appearing to be doomed to lose when Ryan Manning and Michael Obafemi put the hosts up 2-0 in stoppage time, Ben Cabango and Nathan Wood’s own goals in the final four minutes forced a draw.
The Lions will want to claim a noteworthy victory this weekend in order to increase their point total to 10 after five games as they look to keep improving gradually in the Championship and make a run at the playoffs this year.
Although Norwich has the talent to harm any team in the league after their victory on Tuesday, we expect them to face a difficult test against a tenacious Millwall team.
This season, Rowett’s team has proven to be tenacious, and they may be able to perform well enough to leave Carrow Road with a share of the spoils.
