VIDEO: Norwich City 6, Scunthorpe United 0

Michael Bailey reviews Norwich City's impressive 6-0 win over Scunthorpe United at Carrow Road.

Skipper Grant Holt and substitute Simeon Jackson scored hat-tricks as promotion-chasing Norwich City turned on the style to record their biggest win of the Championship campaign.

Holt's treble took him to 51 career goals for the Canaries and Jackson added a remarkable hat-trick of his own in the space of 15 minutes to wrap up a comprehensive victory over relegation-threatened Scunthorpe United in front of Carrow Road's second biggest crowd of the season.

It was the most one-sided game seen at Norwich for many a season and there was a party atmosphere inside the stadium even before Jackson's 70th-minute introduction.

Defeat for promotion rivals Swansea at Preston made it an even better afternoon for Paul Lambert's men, who opened up a four-point gap over Cardiff City in third place with a veritable goal feast.
