ANALYSIS: Watch Michael Bailey’s video verdict as Norwich City thrash Bolton
Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries thump struggling Bolton Wanders with a superb reaction to their Preston defeat.
Teemu Pukki, Marco Stiepermann and Emi Buendia all got their names on the score sheet in a dominant first-half performance, against a side threatened with relegation and without a home league win since Boxing Day.
Pukki added a second after the interval, taking his tally to 24 goals in all competitions and eight in his last six outings, with a goal in each game.
It wasn’t all plain sailing, as Kenny McLean saw his second-half penalty saved by Remi Matthews – ensuring Norwich have now failed to convert six of their last seven spot kicks.
However, that did not prevent Daniel Farke’s side returning to the top of the Championship pile with their victory – and second clean sheet in three games.
Lee Johnson’s Bristol City visit Carrow Road next weekend (Saturday, 3pm) in the midst of a seven-game winning run and 13 unbeaten, stretching back to the end of November – including when the two sides drew 2-2 at Ashton Gate in December.
City follow that with a visit to Millwall the following weekend. City lost 4-0 at The Den last season, just a handful of games into Daniel Farke’s reign.
