Norwich City score three goals at Carrow Road and put a smile on their supporters’ faces after a superb second half earned victory over Sheffield Wednesday – see how Canaries fans reacted to an enjoyable evening at the office and a first win in exactly three months.
Second-half goals from James Maddison, Timm Klose and Nelson Oliveira’s injury-time penalty provided the perfect response to a difficult first half.
Daniel Farke’s side had found themselves 1-0 down at half-time thanks to Jordan Rhodes’ cute opener – an Owls goal that left a disgruntled Carrow Road ready to burst.
However, the Canaries turned the live Sky Sports game on its head after the interval.
Alex Pritchard – starting for the first time this season following injury – made the equaliser that Maddison took in his stride, before Klose’s bullet header dispatched Maddison’s corner.
Oliveira was then on hand from 12 yards after Harrison Reed was dumped to the floor by Barry Bannan, in a last-minute counter.
City had gone seven games without a league win before Saturday evening, their previous victory coming at East Anglian derby rivals Ipswich back in October.
But Carrow Road’s wait for a Championship victory had been far greater. It was September 9 when the Canaries beat Birmingham 1-0 – exactly three months ago to the day of their next success.
