Norwich City's impressive home form continued yesterday in the U21 Premier League with Jamie Eaton-Collins' second-half goal sinking West Ham's U21s 1-0 at Colney.

The club's development squad have struggled on the road in the elite tier this season, but victory over the Hammers was their third consecutive win in Norfolk.

Jamar Loza and Conor McGrandles both played 90 minutes but none of Neil Adams' fringe first team men were on duty.

Eaton-Collins converted Cameron Norman's cross on 76 minutes against a visiting outfit who were reduced to 10 men barely 15 minutes into the game when full-back Lewis Page was sent off for tripping Loza.

Adel Gafaiti scuffed a shot from Ray Grant's ball and Loza was then denied by Hammers' keeper Sam Howes from Cameron McGeehan's initial pass.

Reece Hall-Johnson and Carlton Morris were also thwarted before half-time, and Howes pulled off an acrobatic save to keep out Sam Kelly's deflected drive after McGrandles had tested the over-worked stopper.

Ben Killip was pressed into action to foil Sebastien Lletget and Kieran Sadlier, but it was the hosts who eventually broke the deadlock when Eaton-Collins finished Norman's cross to notch his second goal of the season at development level.
