Adam Idah hates the ‘super sub’ tag but is the best in the Championship for David Wagner.

The Republic of Ireland international notched a dramatic stoppage time winner to sink Bristol City on Sunday, and continue his remarkable impact from the bench this season.

Idah’s six league goals have all come as a replacement, with the latest clinical finish following on from match-winning interventions against Hull, Huddersfield and Cardiff City.

“Adam wants to start games, I get that, but he is such a dangerous substitution because he is always switched on, and if opponents are perhaps tired with his pace and power he can always create something,” said head coach Wagner. “That is a super strength. At the minute he is the most dangerous substitute in the league.

“Sometimes he is in the right position at the right moment, like Hull or Cardiff, and he has the quality to finish. I'm very happy for him to score another winner.

“I think we started better in both halves, the first 15, 20 minutes of both halves.  Unfortunately, first half, we were not able to use our clear-cut chances and then more or less with the first opportunity Bristol scored, and how the players then reacted to coming from behind and to get the win in the final seconds is just great.

"Because of the work ethic and the togetherness I think it was a deserved win, even if it was a tight game, where small margins decided it.

“Bristol is a good side with a good idea of football, very energetic, and they had very good results recently. We knew that this is a difficult place to go but in the Championship more or less every game is very difficult and it's just great that we now picked up the points, and we’d like to create our own momentum.”

City have won three of the last four after a dire run and have two Carrow Road games on the spin, starting with Preston’s league visit this weekend.

“Now it's all about to recover, stay focused and make sure that you collect in a very busy period as much points as you can,” said the Norwich head coach. “Hopefully we can get our injured players back too.

“We all together know what a difficult period we had, not only results-wise, but everybody knows how limited we were in terms of the full volume of the squad. We had some big players back (at Bristol) and it will give us a further boost. To recover after four defeats with nine out of 12 points is good. Now we are looking forward to the next home game.”
