Ten wins in a row - 1985/86: Ken Brown's Division Two title-chasing team won 10 successive games at Carrow Road from late November to early April, scoring 30 goals and conceding just seven in the process. Their formidable run included a 6-1 pre-Christmas victory over Millwall and a 4-1 win over Huddersfield, familiar opponents. At one stage in the season, they won 10 league games on the trot - home and away.

t Nine wins in a row - 1929/30, 1932/33, 2009/10: The Nest was a real stronghold for the Canaries in the late 1920s and early 30s. The first run included a 3-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on Christmas Day 1929, the highlight of the second was Oliver Brown scoring four in a 6-0 thrashing of Bournemouth in March 1933 - a hint of title success to come in Division Three South the following season. The current team equalled both these sequences with the win over Exeter on January 9.
