Away days don’t get much better than that for Norwich City’s loyal travelling support, as they were treated to their side’s first away win since December and first away clean sheet all season.
The performance itself, while it may not have been glamorous, was the definition of ‘game management’. They kept things tight in the first half and quietened the home crowd, while maintaining the occasional threat on the counter attack.
The second half, however, was when the away side came into their element. The goal had a rather large slice of fortunate to it, as Matt Jarvis completely fluffed his lines in front of goal with the fumble ending up at the feet of the oncoming Brady. But they say you make your own luck, and lady luck has definitely not been on the side of the Norfolk club this season.
The finish was ruthless but measured, and they defended their lead to perfection. The home side hardly had a look in as Norwich recorded a vital three points.
