Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries preserve their unbeaten run – but do it the hard way at Wigan Athletic.

Reece James’ penalty on the stroke of half-time underlined the Canaries’ difficult opening half in front of 5,300 travelling supporters, giving the hosts the lead thanks to a harsh decision against Ben Godfrey.

But City made it 10 games unbeaten thanks to Teemu Pukki’s 27th Championship goal of the campaign just nine minutes from time – and after Tim Krull had pulled off an excellent save from Leon Clarke.

Clarke also had a late header chalked off for offside, while City had their own opportunities to win it.

But ultimately City could take the point, that leaves them six points from securing automatic promotion.
