Norwich City fans react to their side's fifth successive win in all competitions, as the Canaries break into the Championship top six with victory over Wigan Athletic at Carrow Road.

Substitute Mario Vrancic's late penalty proved enough to end Wigan's run of two successive victories and it perhaps should have been easier for the Canaries, on sheer weight of chances – especially in the second half.

Wigan themselves – led by former City player Paul Cook – failed to muster a single shot on target in the 90 minutes.

The win lifted City into fifth in the Championship table with 10 games gone – along with their first positive goal difference since Daniel Farke took change in the summer of 2017.
