Norwich Res 3, Northampton Res 0

Matt Ball struck twice as a youthful City Reserve side secured a comfortable Totesport.com Combination win at Colney.

The visitors found themselves under pressure from the word go but held out until the hour mark when Tom Adeyemi headed home a cross from skipper Damon Lathrope to open the scoring.

The Canaries doubled their advantage 10 minutes later as Ball curled the ball past keeper Chris Dunn after a cross from Remi Gordon had been deflected into his path.
