When the Canaries last made the marathon trek to this neck of the woods they arguably produced their best away performance of the campaign.
Two Ched Evans goals were enough to cause what still remained a shock result to some extent at Cardiff that day despite City having won their two previous games and extended their unbeaten run to 11 matches, but no-one could deny that Norwich were full value for their three points over the course of the game.
Of course it all started to go dramatically downhill for City thereafter, and following a 1-1 home draw with Hull three days later the Canaries promptly embarked on what alarmingly began to resemble a suicide mission until they thankfully managed to stop the rot with that fantastic 5-1 drubbing of relegation-bound Colchester last week.
One more win might be enough to ensure that City will be playing Championship football again next season and couple of victories will make it absolutely certain.
But although tomorrow's trip to second-placed Bristol will inevitably provide the Canaries with a much sterner test that they received last Saturday, providing that the players can continue in the vein that saw them destroy Colchester last week as well as remembering what ultimately got them the job done at Ninian Park, then nothing should be ruled out.
After three matches without a goal the five that City did score last week was no more than they deserved given the manner of their attacking play, as not only did Norwich look bright and inventive, but they did so for virtually all of the 90 minutes as opposed to just an occasional burst here and there.
Too often in recent weeks City have pin-pointed wasted scoring opportunities for their failings, but the fact of the matter being that they simply weren't creating as many chances as they should have been doing.
Last week though ? albeit against a relatively weak opposition – we witnessed City in extremely proactive mode for the duration, and it reflected in the result.
Something that has been particularly pleasing to hear this week therefore, is manager Glenn Roeder indicating that the intended game plan for the Canaries tomorrow will be to try to approach the contest as if it were a home match, and for City to accordingly attack their opponents as forcefully and as often as possible.
It's certainly the right thing to do, especially so considering that on the occasions when City have adopted a more cautious and defensive approach away from home, they've ultimately been beaten anyway.
As we saw when Bristol City visited Carrow Road back in October, Gary Johnson has assembled a well-disciplined and organised outfit.
The Robins were the best team that day and were full value for their 3-1 win despite Norwich having started the game brightly, and since then they have continued to deliver results against all expectations to the extent that with just six games remaining they are one of five teams in with a shout of automatic promotion to the top flight.
After five matches without a league victory though the hosts do need to get back to winning ways tomorrow, and they will no doubt try to take the game to Norwich from the first whistle in order to make it happen.
All of which could, of course, point to a very entertaining and attacking, end-to-end encounter.
