Canaries Run Rings Round The Hoops

By on 29th November in Our Company News

The Canaries boosted their Premiership position against QPR on Saturday, snatching the win thanks to the fans favourite, Grant Holt.

The 2 newly promoted teams have started well to their Premiership campaign and were both hoping to continue their fine form and grab all 3 points, but it was the boys in yellow who came out on top, with skipper Russell Martin opening the scoring.

Norwich were dominating the first half at Carrow road, and after impressive attempts from Crofts and Morison, a resulting corner taken by Andrew Surman, saw the ball land in the 6 yard box, Anton Ferdinand failed to react quicker than Martin who put Norwich ahead.

Shaun Wright-Phillips had a penalty turned down almost immediately afterwards after he drifted in at the back post, and went down over the outstretched arms of goalkeeper John Ruddy. Referee Mark Clattenburg turned down the appeals.

However, not long after half-time the R’s found their break when Luke Young scored his second goal in as many games. Mackie smashed the ball from quite a way out, which crashed into the post and fell to the feet of Young who made no mistake slotting the ball away.

Norwich were not done there though, as manager Paul Lambert pulled out his trump cards; Wes Hoolahan and Grant Holt came on in an attempt to grab all 3 points.

And it paid off for the Scotsman, as Holt had a shot cleared off the line, but the cross after that from Hoolahan was buried by the hero Holt to put Norwich 2-1 up.

That’s how the game stayed and Norwich see themselves sitting in 9th position in the league. Steve Morison earned the Anglian Home Improvements Man of the Match award thanks to his desire, passion and work rate to win the game.
