How the Express & Star reported Norwich City's 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

• Match report

'The first half in particular was a big let-down, with Walter Zenga failing to get the reaction he wanted from his players following the 2-1 midweek defeat at Wigan.'


You may also want to watch:


'What a sucker punch...but what a strike. Robbie Brady picks his spot from 25 yards - and that spot is the top corner. Even some Wolves fans can only applaud that.'

'Wolves played far too deep, inviting pressure, and were slow and sluggish in the tackle. It also wasn't clear what formation they were playing. Their front three were disjointed, their midfield tentative, the defence hesitant.'

• Post-match reaction from Wolves fans

'Norwich were no great shakes and no better than us but scored a beauty to make it two after another fine margin was missed.'

'In fairness I have seen us play worse and win but against a Norwich team that were a step above us we needed to be on it from the start.'

'Not all doom and gloom from me this week, thought it was a good game in the end against a Norwich team destined for a quick return to the promised land.'

'I fully expect Norwich to finish in the top two. I also expect us to put up more of a fight when playing them, especially at home.'

'We deserved nothing from this game. We played with passion in the last 30 minutes, but for 60 minutes we were second best. It was 'men against boys' in the first half.'

'Norwich's midfield played just how we would like to see ours - fast-paced, first-time balls, lots of movement and nearly always moving forward when in possession.'

'Losing to Norwich at home in October isn't the end of the world and certainly will not define our season. The Canaries have a good core of Champ/Prem players that have played with each other for a number of seasons...this was reflected in their more fluent approach to the game, the additional quality when it mattered and their ability to close the game out 'comfortably' at the end.'
