Two Championship promotion hopefuls will go head-to-head in a crunch clash at Carrow Road on Wednesday.

Norwich are leading the way in the second tier at present, as Daniel Farke’s side seek an immediate return to the Premier League following relegation last time out. Norwich went down with something of a whimper in 2019/20, but they look set to return to the top tier as a stronger side after rebuilding after last year’s disappointment. 

It is too early for the Canaries to start celebrating, particularly in as open a league as the Championship, but it is difficult to see them blowing a 10-point lead over third place with just 13 rounds of fixtures remaining. Victory here would take them a step closer to securing a place in the Premier League, and Norwich head into the game in excellent form. Indeed, a win on Wednesday would be their sixth on the bounce after triumphs over Stoke, Coventry, Rotherham, Birmingham and Wycombe in recent weeks.

Having experienced play-off heartache by losing last season’s final to Fulham, Brentford are hoping to go up automatically this time around. They currently sit second in the standings, but a three-point margin ahead of the play-off places is much too close for comfort.

Brentford suffered a wobble in the middle of February, losing three games on the bounce and allowing Norwich to extend their lead at the summit of the standings. Thomas Frank’s side have beaten Swansea and Stoke since then, though, while they have also scored more goals than any other team in the second flight.

Norwich will have to make do without goalkeeper Michael McGovern, right-back Sam Byram and German midfielder Marco Stiepermann, while Todd Cantwell is a doubt.

Brentford will be unable to call upon the services of centre-back Pontus Jansson, left-back Rico Henry and midfielder Shandon Baptiste, but Frank has no fresh injury concerns to contend with.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Action in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Norwich City vs Brentford live stream live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
