Gayle to force another Crystal Palace win at Carrow Road

Crystal Palace have won three of their last four games at Norwich and the visitors are worth backing at 10/3.

This game may not be the favourite to open the Match Of The Day line-up however it is a crucial relegation clash and it’s the visitors who come into the game with more momentum.

New manager Tony Pulis was on-hand to see his side beat Hull one-nil last weekend and that win was deserved.

The Eagles were on the wrong end of a poor red-card decision for Yannick Bolasie but showed plenty of resolution to grind out the victory thanks to a late Barry Bannan strike.

That success came on the back of a home draw against Everton where they deserved to win.

Pulis made his name at Stoke City with some robust players and a direct way of playing, however Palace have more guile about them and their pace can cause the Norwich defence problems.

Dwight Gayle is very quick and the former Peterborough man looks the perfect foil for Cameron Jerome who played under Pulis at Stoke.

Gayle has not had much service so far this season but has two goals in his first Premier League season and is 2/1 to add a third to his tally.

Goals have not been easy to come by for the London side – they have only scored seven in 12 games – but their win at Hull proves that they can beat teams in the bottom-half of the table away from home.

Those games are crucial for teams hoping to escape relegation and, backed by a passionate and very vocal away following, the visitors looks good value.

Bet on Dwight Gayle to score anytime at 2/1

Chris Hughton’s Norwich have only won one of their last six Premier League games and that was against West Ham.

They were one-nil down at half-time and not really in the match until a soft penalty and then a wonderful Robert Snodgrass freekick gave them momentum and they went on to win 3-1.

However the home fans – perhaps in need of a rallying cry from Delia – weren’t at their most vocal and there is a feeling of disgruntlement at Carrow Road.

The Canaries have conceded 23 goals in their last 7 games in all competitions although backers will hope that their solid home record – eight points from six games – will get them through this tough examination.
