At the Murderers in Timberhill, supporters clad in green and yellow were almost spilling out the door as they enjoyed the game.

And at the Coach and Horses, on Thorpe Road, a triumphant roar went up as James Maddison scored to secure the win.

Before the goal, Richard Woods, from Norwich, said things were going much as expected.

The 50-year-old said: 'Obviously we want a Norwich win but also just to see them go and play some good football.'
