Fit-again Norwich City duo Louis Thompson and Carlton Morris banked another 90 minutes as the season ended in a narrow loss for Norwich City Under-23s at Fulham.

Irish striker Adam Idah was denied by a good save midway through the first half at Motspur Park but the Cottagers scored the game’s only goal five minutes after the break at their training ground on Friday night.

It was a third consecutive defeat for David Wright’s team, leaving them second from bottom in Division Two of Premier League Two after disappointing season, winning just five of 22 games.

The positive was a third full game for the recovering Thompson and Morris, who can now set their sights on pre-season, as well as 90 minutes for January signing Akin Famewo in defence.

Republic of Ireland U21 international Idah finishes the season as City’s top scorer with 13 goals in 24 games.
