Norwich City breathed fresh life into their season with an impressive 1-0 win over Middlesbrough – and now you can re-live the Carrow Road victory with some of our favourite images.
The Canaries emerged from the international break with a display full of energy and determination to inflict a first defeat of the season on the visitors and end their run of five consecutive clean sheets.
Finland international Teemu Pukki scored the crucial goal in the 58th minute, after bright play from youngsters Max Aarons and Emi Buendia on the right, taking a classy touch and poking home with the help of a deflection.
City keeper Tim Krul also made a crucial save in each half, to ensure the Canaries got back to winning ways and moved up to 16th in the table with eight points after seven games.
Next up for the Canaries are two away games, away to Reading on Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, who both also gave their slow starts to the season a boost at the weekend with a 3-2 win at Preston for Reading and a 2-1 win at Bolton for QPR.
