The Canaries marked the arrival of new sporting director Stuart Webber in style, scoring six goals in the first half of a league game for the first time since 1908, to pummel the play-off chasing Royals.

Nelson Oliveira opened the floogates with a third minute penalty before braces from Wes Hoolahan, Alex Pritchard and Russell Martin's strke put them well out of sight prior to the interval. Yann Kermorgant did reply in a crazy first half but Cameron Jerome had the final say two minutes from time.
