Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries make it six wins from eight games with victory at Millwall.
Goals from Marco Stiepermann, Christoph Zimmermann and Teemu Pukki – his 24th Championship goal of the campaign – earned a precious three points.
The afternoon was far straight forward as the relegation-threatened Lions made life difficult for Daniel Farke’s men, and Shaun Williams’ header ensured the sides went in level at half time.
However, Norwich found a way – their 20th victory of the campaign sending them back above Leeds and top of the second tier, with all eyes now on the Sheffield derby at Hillsborough on Monday night.
City follow their date in London with a Friday night under the Carrow Road floodlights as Swansea visit, with Hull doing likewise five days later.
