VIDEO: Sheffield United 1, Norwich City 2

Chris Lakey reviews Norwich City's 2-1 win at Sheffield United - the Canaries' sixth Championship away win of the season,

Two second-half goals from midfielder Andrew Crofts completed the first Championship double of the season for promotion-chasing Norwich City.

Crofts took his goal tally to six for the campaign as the Canaries followed up their 4-2 Christmas home win over struggling Sheffield United by securing another vital three points at Bramall Lane.

It was City's sixth Championship away win of the season, but it took them until the second period to click into gear.

Crofts gave them the lead in the 61st minute when a David Fox corner fell to him to fire home on the half-volley.

Former Norwich loan striker Ched Evans levelled the scores eight minutes later with his eighth goal of the season, a neat finish from close range.

But with 10 minutes left, Crofts was the man to supply an emphatic finish once again following another Fox corner.
