Norwich City supporters are trying to keep an eye on the bigger picture, after a frustrating 2-1 home defeat to Derby County.

The Rams settled the game in the 83rd minute after substitute Sam Winnall followed up on a fine save from goalkeeper Angus Gunn from former City favourite Bradley Johsnon.

That followed David Nugent giving the visitors the lead in first half injury-time and Timm Klose equalising in the 71st minute, after Marco Stiepermann had twice come agonisingly close for City.

It brought an end to eight games without defeat in the Championship for Daniel Farke’s team but was also a fourth successive game at Carrow Road without a win.

Following on from a gruelling evening at Premier League giants Arsenal on Tuesday, losing 2-1 after extra-time in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, the hosts looked tired in the closing stages.
