Norwich City continued what looks to be a cruise towards winning promotion back to the Premier League on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win over Bristol City.

The win was Norwich’s third in a row in the league, and they are currently seven points clear at the top of the Championship.

Mainstay in side

One player who has impressed during the good run of form is Scotland midfielder Kenny McLean. After recovering from a knee injury, he has been a mainstay in the side.

His performances in the middle of the park have been key to Norwich’s seemingly unstoppable road back to the Premier League.


Norwich boss Daniel Farke will no doubt be impressed with how well the player has been performing. As will Scotland boss Steve Clarke. McLean seems certain to be in the Scotland squad for the World Cup qualifiers that begin in March.

As long as he stays fit, he seems certain to be in the squad for Euro 2020 too. Of course, it is important when fans acknowledge your performances. That is what some Norwich fans on social media did following the win over Bristol City.

Dominated middle of the park

One fan claimed that McLean has been Norwich’s best player in the last month. Another praised the player for dominating the middle of the park.

It will be interesting to see if McLean starts Norwich’s next game. An FA Cup tie against Barnsley isn’t as important as winning promotion to the club surely. However, if Farke wants to keep the winning run going, then McLean might well start.
