The Canaries were beaten 4-3 by West Bromwich Albion in a dramatic encounter to follow on from the opening weekend's 2-2 draw at Birmingham in which Daniel Farke's side twice came from behind late on.

They claimed the lead midway through the first half of their second game of the Championship campaign when Jordan Rhodes scored from close range but the visitors grabbed an equaliser from the penalty spot through Jay Rodriguez, with Rhodes missing a chance to reclaim the lead with a spot-kick before the break.

The Baggies moved 3-1 ahead after half-time when City keeper Tim Krul made a hash of a Rodriguez shot and Harvey Barnes blasted a shot in from the edge of the box.

Teemu Pukki made it 3-2 after good work from Onel Hernandez, who had also won the penalty which Rhodes missed, before Hal Robson-Kanu eased the Baggies 4-2 up from a corner.
