Norwich City extended their unbeaten run to four games as they salvaged a draw against fellow promotion hopefuls Brentford in West London last night - and now you can watch extended highlights of the Championship battle.
Emi Buendia and Grant Hanley went agonisingly close to scoring for the Canaries either side of Ivan Toney putting the hosts in front in the 27th minute
Tim Krul also made two vital saves to prevent the Bees from doubling their lead either side of half-time and that allowed City to work their way into a tense second half.
Eventually it was Kenny McLean, introduced as a substitute alongside Jordan Hugill in the 68th minute, who span nicely as he received a pass from Buendia on the edge of the box and fired a low shot which deflected kindly past home keeper David Raya Martin.
It was the Scotland international’s first goal since the famous 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League in September 2019 and although City couldn’t stretch their winning streak to four games, it kept an unbeaten streak in tact.
