The ghosts of Christmas past do not haunt Daniel Farke's Canaries

What a way for Norwich City to see in a Championship Christmas - Michael Bailey offers a seasonal super six things learned from victory at a sodden Blackburn Rovers.

The Championship script writers may have snatched top spot at Christmas away from Norwich City but a late Leeds winner will not wipe the smiles from Canaries faces.
