Race for the Premier League: How Norwich can be promoted this weekend

Millwall vs Swansea live on Sky Sports Football on Saturday lunchtime; Norwich will be promoted to the Premier League if they beat Derby and Brentford and Swansea fail to win

Leaders Norwich currently boast a healthy five-point advantage over second-placed Watford, with the play-off spots occupied by Brentford, Swansea, Barnsley and Reading. Bournemouth are just one point outside the top six, while Cardiff, Millwall and Middlesbrough retain very slim hopes.

The Canaries could, in fact, be the first team to book their place in next season’s Premier League this weekend. Should they beat Derby at Pride Park on Saturday and both Brentford and Swansea fail to win their respective fixtures against Preston and Millwall, Daniel Farke’s men will secure automatic promotion with five games to spare.
