Norwich City's season was kick-started by a 2-0 home win over Preston last night – and now you can re-live the victory with some of our favourite images from the game.
A first Championship victory was secured after Teemu Pukki rode to the rescue with a fine finish in the 80th minute and Alex Tettey smashed home another seven minutes later.
A drab first half had finished 0-0, with City keeper Tim Krul making a vital save to deny Lukas Nmecha and Mo Leitner firing over tamely for the hosts just before the break.
Krul was again needed soon after half-time, denying a Callum Robinson header and the same player smashed against the bar in the 72nd minute after loose play from Tettey.
But it was Pukki with a classy left-footed striker finish, after a fine dart forward from Jamal Lewis, which spark Carrow Road into life before Tettey put the icing on the cake.
