Mustard sports editor Michael Bailey wraps up his take at St Mary’s Stadium, following Norwich City’s FA Cup exit at Southampton


Watch our pre-match Fan Cam from St Mary's – here:

City’s 2017 FA Cup campaign ended in the third round, as they lost out to Shane Long’s scrambled winner in the second of three added minutes after the 90.

It was a patched-together City side as manager Alex Neil dealt with injuries and suspension for their third round replay.

City took a sizeable contingent of more than 1,000 supporters with them to the south coast, and they could at least appreciate the effort of their team on the pitch against top-flight opposition.

City return to EFL Championship on Saturday, when Wolverhampton Wanderers check into Carrow Road – with Wolves now managed before former City boss, Paul Lambert.
