Norwich City stretched their unbeaten run to five matches with victory at Bristol City, here’s your chance to rate the performances of the Canaries’ players.
Daniel Farke’s team enjoyed the best chances of the game, restricting the high-flying hosts to long-range shots mostly after successfully deploying a back three in defence again, with Josh Brownhill hitting the crossbar in the second half.
Josh Murphy had a shot cleared off the line, Nelson Oliveira wasted two good chances to test Frank Fielding, who also had to beat away a powerful effort from James Maddison.
It was then prized playmaker Maddison who made the difference in the 79th minute, after a wonderful long pass from Mario Vrancic to Ivo Pinto on the right, who allowed the England Under-21 international to drop his shoulder, turn into space and then thump a left-footed shot into the bottom-left corner in front of the 1,200 travelling fans.
The victory, City’s third in four league games, kept the Canaries in 13th place but reduced the gap to the play-offs to just six points.
Farke now prepares his team for a trip to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, for an FA Cup third round replay against Premier League giants Chelsea.
