There was a jam-packed agenda for the Pink Un Podcast team to discuss following Norwich City’s 1-0 home defeat to Derby County, thanks to a late free-kick from England’s record goal-scorer Wayne Rooney.

The Manchester United legend’s free-kick settled matters at Carrow Road, despite the Canaries largely dominating the Championship podcast, with former City number one David Marshall having to make some crucial saves either side of the goal.

The Scotland keeper brilliantly denied a Max Aarons shot, after an excellent cross from substitute Mario Vrancic, and also superbly tipped a powerful header from substitute striker Jordan Hugill around his post soon after Rooney’s goal.

The second successive defeat, having also lost 1-0 at Bournemouth the previous weekend, has left Daniel Farke’s side 14th in the early table having taken four points from the first four games since relegation from the Premier League.

With England Under-21 international Ben Godfrey on the verge of sealing a club record sale, for an initial £25million, Ben Gibson made his debut in central defence.
