Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries secure their Premier League return with victory over Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road.

First-half goals from Marco Stiepermann and including Mario Vrancic's stunning effort earned the Canaries their 26th victory of the season, and the point they needed to secure their top-two finish.

Sheffield United won 2-0 at home to relegated Ipswich Town earlier in the evening, while a point at Villa Park on the final Sunday of the season will be enough to guarantee the Championship title.

Lewis Travis' goal reduced the arrears and made life interesting enough for Carrow Road's final fixture of the campaign.

But in the end, Daniel Farke's men sealed the deal – and the celebrations soon began.
