Sam Winnall came off the bench to secure victory for Derby County at Carrow Road and condemn Norwich City to their first EFL Championship defeat since August.
The Canaries were denied a first-half penalty after Josh Murphy was hauled down in the box by Ramms goalkeeper Scott Carson, before David Nugent gave the visitors the lead on the stroke of half-time.
Timm Klose’s second-half equaliser got City back into the game, only for Winnall to snatch all three points – with Nelson Oliveira seeing his substitute appearance end early through injury.
