Norwich City beat Hull 3-2 on Wednesday night to return to the top of the Championship table.
Emi Buendia scored twice, after Marco Stiepermann opened the scoring, as Norwich won for the fifth match in succession.
Marc Pugh and Chris Martin scored for Hull, but Norwich dealt with the pressure well in the end to secure the three points.
Here are four things we learned…
Krul needs replacing if we go up
In the Championship, Krul is fine. We’re good enough to deal with the occasional mistake from Krul, and he still makes some vital saves. However, if we are to be promoted then he’ll need to be replaced with a better keeper. You can’t afford those sorts of mistakes in the Premier League.
Buendia is in with a shout for Player of the Season
Buendia should be in with a shout for Championship Player of the Season, let alone just Norwich’s. Him and Teemu Pukki should be in the top three alongside Leeds’ Pablo Hernandez.
Godfrey is still learning how to play centre-back
It’s easy to forget that this is Godfrey’s first spell of games as a centre-back, such has been the quality of his performances, but he made a simple error for Hull’s second game. He was standing in a position you would expect a holding midfield to be in the box, rather than a centre-back, and it left Chris Martin free to head home. Something for him to learn from.
Farke needs to use his subs better
After the score became 3-1 the game was visibly becoming stale. Norwich were comfortably winning and have played a lot of football lately, yet Farke still refused to make any substitutions until the final few minutes of the game. Why? The likes of Mo Leitner, Timm Klose, Jordan Rhodes and Mario Vrancic could all have done with some minutes on the pitch. Felt like a wasted opportunity.
