As Norwich City finally put to bed their winless run in the EFL Championship and at Carrow Road, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 3-1 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday.
I’ve seen the majority of Cardiff City’s home games this season and I have to say I’ve not seen a team cause them as much trouble as Norwich did in those opening 45 minutes – just how they didn’t go in at half-time winning the game by 3-0 goodness knows.
As Norwich City’s winless run in the EFL Championship continues, Michael Bailey dishes out his video verdict and ratings following the Canaries’ 1-1 draw with Alex Neil’s Preston North End at Carrow Road.
After that win at Portman Road on October 22, Norwich City were sitting in sixth position in the Championship, confidence was sky high within the squad, supporters were starting to think of the play-offs and all was rosy in the Canaries garden.
We now know England will be our sole representatives in the World Cup in Russia next summer after both Northern Ireland and their neighbours the Republic of Ireland both suffered heartache in their respective play-offs.
Last Saturday’s game was slightly surreal in that City utterly dominated the first 20 minutes, created two excellent chances and then proceeded to gift the initiative as sloppy errors and unfocused defending allowed Bolton to claim a two-goal lead which had looked totally beyond them in that opening period.
Like many of you after the team’s very impressive eight-game unbeaten run in the Championship, I got a little bit carried away as Norwich sat in a credible sixth position, thinking that the play-offs were a real possibility this season.
