Carefree, clinical and joyous to watch. Those are the best words to use to describe Norwich City's victory at Nottingham Forest - and you can recap all the action, updates and analysis via our live matchday blog. 

Teemu Pukki's 21st goal of the season inside the opening 10 minutes set the tempo for a pleasing evening for Daniel Farke's men. 

City were without their creator in chief Emi Buendia, who became a father for the second time on Tuesday. His replacement Kieran Dowell netted his first league goal for the club to double their advantage. His effort from range flew past Jordan Smith and into the net. 

Kenny McLean had a glorious chance to add gloss to the victory before half-time but saw his effort smothered by Smith. Forest failed to majorly threaten Tim Krul's goal as City entered game management mode to move 13 points clear of third placed Swansea. 

Daniel Farke's men have now set a new club record for successive victories. You would expect it's the first of many records set to be broken in the coming weeks.
