Norwich City returned to Championship action this afternoon, beating mid-table Cardiff to stretch their lead at the top of the table.

The Canaries completed their first double of the campaign, having beaten the Bluebirds 2-0 at Carrow Road a month ago.

Goals from Grant Hanley and Todd Cantwell were enough to secure the points at the Cardiff City Stadium, with Joe Ralls bringing the hosts back into it in the 65th minute, only for his captain Marlon Pack to be sent off five minutes later.

Victory moved the Canaries eight points clear of third-placed Bournemouth, who lost 1-0 at home to Luton, with Swansea seven adrift in second ahead of their game at Barnsley this evening.
