Daniel Farke’s side had already secured a mightily impressive three points, and it was former Canaries loanee, Bamford, who’d scored a late consolation for his his team.
The forward allegedly confronted Ben Godfrey after Stuart Attwell had blown for full-time.
Krul, in defence of his teammate, intervened and appeared to lean his head towards Bamford before City skipper Christoph Zimmerman stepped in to break up the altercation.
As quoted by the Pinkun, the Dutchman discussed his actions after the match. He said:
I walked over and what’s the striker called? Bamford? He was giving Ben Godfrey all sorts, grabbing him. So I said ’come on’ and I pushed him away, told him the game was over.
Norwich will have Krul available for this Sunday’s game against Ipswich, with the Canaries out to continue their push for promotion to the Premier League this season.
