Norwich City’s poor run of EFL Championship form continued at the Macron Stadium as Bolton Wanderers stunned their weekend visitors – and we were there from first moment to last.
Our Canaries correspondents Michael Bailey, Paddy Davitt and David Freezer were at Carrow Road to send off the supporters’ coaches, and then the Macron Stadium to break the team news and get the post-match verdict from City head coach Daniel Farke, as well as delivering their own analysis following City’s first league defeat on the road in five away games.
Goals late in the first half from Gary Madine and Adam Armstrong proved enough to put Norwich to the sword.
It rendered Josh Murphy’s injury strike nothing more than a consolation.
City headed into the game off the back of successive Carrow Road defeats, to promotion hopefuls Derby County and Wolverhampton Wanderers respectively.

Their previous draw came at Sunderland, with the 3-3 result spelling the end of Black Cats manager Simon Grayson.
The final international break of 2017 now arrives following Saturday’s northern outing. When Farke’s Canaries return, they welcome Paul Heckingbottom’s Barnsley and Alex Neil’s Preston to Carrow Road on successive Saturdays – sandwiching a trip to Mark Warburton’s Nottingham Forest.
