Norwich were playing at home and started the game well, but seemed vulnerable to the odd counter attack. It was stern defending by the team that prevented the visitors taking the lead.
Jonny Wheater and JC Brown were looking like a dangerous duo for Norwich with good passing and intelligent kicking out of hand. The Lions had failed on numerous occasions throughout the first half to score the first points, that was until Martin Cullum latched onto the end of a pass to go over in the corner. Brown couldn’t convert from the tight angle.
Norwich clung on for the majority of the half and even when Rochford threw everything they could at the solid defence, they just couldn’t break them down, meaning Norwich move up to 4th in the league with this crucial win.
