Fernando Forestieri controversially missed the goalless draw shared at Carrow Road in August, as he tried to force through a move to Newcastle.
This time around he was happy to prove what last season's play-off final losers Sheffield Wednesday could achieve this season, by humbling Norwich City at Hillsborough.
'After we lost at Leeds, we've come back strong,' said the Argentine forward, who scored the Owls' fifth goal – a delicious free-kick.
'I was so happy with my goal. Me and Ross (Wallace) in training every day, when everyone goes home we stay there to practice our free-kicks and shots. He said I could shoot this time.
'We showed everyone we can do something important this season. We were unlucky last season but we are showing we can get there again.'

It was Wallace who opened the scoring from 40 yards, after John Ruddy's clearance presented the Scot with an open target.
'Obviously the keeper miskicked it and luckily enough it landed to me, and I just needed to get it on target and hit it clean,' he said.
