Norwich City have reached the last 16 of the FA Cup for the first time since 2012, and supporters have reacted with joy at today’s 2-1 victory over Burnley.












Grant Hanley scored his first goal in over a year to give City the lead. The Scottish international escaped the attentions of Kevin Long before heading Mario Vrancic's free-kick into the net.

He silenced the home crowd who were berating him throughout the afternoon due to his connection with arch-rivals Blackburn Rovers.

City doubled their lead two minutes later, with striker Josip Drmic tapping in after Lukas Rupp's effort was saved by former England number one Joe Hart.

The Swiss has struggled to find his rhythm since joining the club last summer, with injuries plaguing his first season with the club.
