Norwich City fans tried to light up Carrow Road with their mobile phones this evening as a failed floodlight caused the suspension of the match against Derby County.
Teemu Pukki had just scored to put Norwich 3-2 ahead in the 81st minute when the floodlights between the City Stand and the River End went out.
The players were taken off as the club's staff tried to fix the problem.
Eager City fans tried to help by switching on the torches on their phones and holding them in the air - though the combined glow was not enough to match the glare of the broken light tower.
The lights took more than 15 minutes to fix, and there followed some dark times for Norwich as they succumbed to two late goals to lose 4-3.
