Norwich City sealed their place in the next round of the League Cup as they beat Brentford 3-1 away from home.

The Canaries took the lead in the 10th minute. Marley Watkins was brought down in the box, with Mario Vrancic coolly stepping up to slot home his first goal for the club.

Brentford were handed the same chance to level the scoring. Wes Hoolahan was penalised for a slide tackle in the box, but Yoann Barbet blazed the ball high over the bar from the spot.

Mario Vrancic then sealed his brace in the second half. The midfielder whipped a superb free-kick into the left bottom corner to put Norwich 2-0 up.

Josh Murphy sealed the win late on. Tom Trybull curled a superb ball through to Murphy, who raced clear and dinked the ball over the ‘keeper.

Brentford pulled one back in added time as Josh Clarke poked the ball home from close range.
