The Daniel Farke era at Norwich City well and truly has lift off, after a superb win at promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough.


Battling their way to a third successive away victory in all competitions, winning 1-0 at the Riverside thanks to a James Maddison stunner extended a rejuvenating unbeaten run to six matches.

The Canaries got the all important goal in the 13th minute after Marley Watkins worked hard to keep alive James Husband’s ball forward and passed infield to Maddison, who shaped a wonderful shot into the top-right corner from 20 yards.

Britt Assombalonga missed several opportunities to trouble Angus Gunn, none more so than when heading straight at the keeper in the 72nd minute after Cyrus Christie had picked him out with a fine cross, with Christoph Zimmermann having cleared a header from the striker off the line in the first half as well.

City then survived a nervy finish to keep a fifth league clean sheet in a row, their first at Boro since April 1976 and a first win on Teesside since 1988.
