Norwich City's superb form continued with a hard fought 1-0 home victory over Brentford, to make it seven wins from nine league games for Daniel Farke's impressive side.

The Canaries followed up last weekend's 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest and their midweek 2-1 win over Aston Villa with a third win on the spin, thanks to Emi Buendia's first goal for the club.

It continued a fine run of form which has seen City win nine and lose just one of their last 12 matches in all competitions, ahead of a Carabo Cup fourth round tie away to Premier League side Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

The success moved Farke's team up to third in the Championship table, level on points with second-placed Middlesbrough, although Leeds could reclaim top spot when they host Nottingham Forest in the day's late kick-off.
