Norwich City scored six goals in the first half of a match at Carrow Road for the very first time yesterday – and now you can re-live the superb performance.

The 7-1 thrashing of Reading may have left supporters frustrated to have not seen such performances put in when it mattered this season but it will still live long in the memory.

A brace apiece for Alex Pritchard and Wes Hoolahan followed an early penalty from striker Nelson Oliveria and was added to be a strike from captain Russell Martin, before top scorer came off the bench late on to tap in the final goal.

Despite beating the Championship’s fourth-placed team with such ease, the day’s late kick-off saw Sheffield Wednesday beat title chasers Newcastle to reclaim sixth place from Fulham and leave City will adrift of the play-off places.

That has left the Canaries in 10th place and nine points behind Wednesday with five games remaining, starting against Fulham on the afternoon of Good Friday.
