Norwich City have moved to the top of the Championship table after 12 games and now you can watch extended highlights of the Canaries’ 1-0 win at Middlesbrough.

It was a tale of two penalties, with Przemek Placheta losing possession and Ben Gibson fouling Marcus Tavernier to give Boro a big chance to claim the lead five minutes after the break.

However, Tavernier slipped as he took the spot-kick and his successful attempt was ruled out, with referee Tony Harrington deciding the midfielder had touched the ball twice.

It was a huge let off against a team who were unbeaten in 10 and had only conceded one goal in their last seven matches - and City took full advantage.

Max Aarons exchanged a one-two with Emi Buendia as he charged forward on the right and was brought down to win a penalty, which half-time substitute Teemu Pukki calmly converted in the 72nd minute for his sixth goal in nine games for club and country.
