The Carabao Cup adventure may have come to an end in the fourth round for a fourth successive season for Norwich City – but the Canaries did themselves proud against top-flight opposition.

There were a host of chances for both teams at Bournemouth on Tuesday night, with City equalising with a third goal of the season from Onel Hernandez midway through the second half.

However a failure to clear a corner less than three minutes later saw defender Steve Cook slam home for the hosts and edge Eddie Howe’s high-flying team into their third quarter-final in five seasons.

Dennis Srbeny had smashed a shot against the post and been denied by home keeper Artur Boruc in the first half and substitute Jordan Rhodes somehow headed wide a golden chance to take it to penalties in the fifth minute of injury-time – to consign Daniel Farke’s resurgent team to just a second defeat in 13 games in all competitions.










City are back in Championship action on Saturday when they go to Sheffield Wednesday in search of a fourth consecutive Championship victory.
