A second-half hat-trick from Tim Henery gave Norwich United victory from an entertaining game and keeping their faint play-off hopes alive.

Liam Jackson put the Planters ahead with a delightful 26th-minute strike from 25 yards out.

The Planters extended their lead five minutes after the break, Jackson turning provider for Henery who slipped one challenge before rolling home. Four minutes later VCD gave themselves a lifeline, Jeffrey Imudia firing past Wilton from the right side of the box.

Two goals in four minutes wrapped the game up for the Planters, Nathan Stewart crossed for Henery to restore the two-goal advantage in the 71st minute and the two combined again with Henery touching home at the far post.

Norwich United: Wilton, Shipley, Radomski, Mason, Wones, Watts, Stewart, Speller, Hipperson (Jones 60), Henery (Eastaugh 82), Jackson (Probart 77). Ref: Adrian Sannerude. Atte: 81.
