Norwich City have extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to ten matches but saw right-back Max Aarons limp out of the 1-1 draw with Coventry City as their injury situation worsens.

Daniel Farke was without 12 members of his first-team squad and was forced to name five academy players on a six-member bench. Aarons appears to have suffered a shin injury after mistiming a tackle as Ryan Giles crossed late on. 

Supporters have responded in different ways to the draw on social media, with some questioning why Farke didn't opt to utilise more players from the bench. Others felt a draw was a fair reflection of the fixture.

Mario Vrancic gave the injury-plagued Canaries the lead after the lively Przemek Placheta was brought down inside the area by stand-in Sky Blues goalkeeper Ben Wilson. The Bosnian stepped up and converted the spot-kick confidently.

City lacked thrust and creativity from midfield but looked set to hang on before they failed to clear Giles' cross and it fell into the path of Maxime Biamou to convert. 

The Canaries travel to Kenilworth Road on Wednesday to face Luton Town before welcoming Tony Pulis' Sheffield Wednesday to Norfolk in a week's time.
