The Canaries needed a point to ensure third-placed Leeds could not catch them but actually lost top spot to Sheffield United ahead of kick-off, who won 2-0 at home against Ipswich to move above City on goal difference.

Thumping finishes from outside the box from Marco Stiepermann and Mario Vrancic sent a rampant City into a 2-0 lead inside 22 minutes on Saturday night, only for Lewis Travis to keep Blackburn in the game.

Emi Buendia and Onel Hernandez both went close to scoring the third that Norwich's excellent display under pressure had deserved but in the end the leaders saw out the win to seal promotion

Daniel Farke's side will also wrap up the Championship title if they draw at Aston Villa next Sunday, although that will only be required to lift the trophy if Sheffield United win at Stoke City, with all the final-day games kicking off at 12.30pm.
