Norwich City loan watch: Abrahams scores but can’t prevent Yeovil’s relegation

There was relegation heartbreak for Norwich City striker Tristan Abrahams, despite scoring for loan club Yeovil Town.
The 20-year-old put the Glovers 1-0 up from the penalty spot in the 18th minute at Northampton on Saturday and the visitors were 2-0 up within six minutes.
However, Northampton hit back with two goals early in the second half and the 2-2 draw saw Yeovil slip out of the Football League after 16 seasons out of non-league, thanks to Macclesfield winning 1-0 at Port Vale.
It was a third goal in 15 games for Abrahams since joining on loan in January, having scored twice in 23 matches while on loan at another League Two club, Exeter, during the first half of the season.
The youngster is out of contract at City this summer, although there is an option for a further year in his contract, and also suffered relegation from the fourth tier with Leyton Orient in 2017.
