Canaries Win At Britannia

Norwich City put in a solid away performance as they beat Stoke City 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium thanks to Jonny Howson's long-range effort in the 34th minute.

The away side looked the better of the two and grabbed their first goal on the road this season when Howson’s dipping effort beat Stoke goalkeeper Begovic.

The Potters came out stronger in the second-half desperately searching for an equaliser with the home fans getting behind their team and preventing the Canaries from getting a rare away win.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes brought on Ireland and Pennant in place of Adam and Walters at half-time to add more width to the home side and then brought on the lanky Peter Crouch for Kenwyn Jones with just less than 30 minutes left to help break down the Norwich defence.

The visitors were definitely less comfortable in the second-half as the home side piled on the pressure and dominated in possession, but it did leave them vulnerable to the counter-attack by Chris Hughton’s men.

In the final 10 minutes of the game Norwich almost grabbed a second when midfielder Paul Snodgrass’s clever turn and curling effort forced a great save by the Stoke shot stopper, to keep his side in the game.

Stoke could not find the equaliser at home and handed Norwich their first ever Premier League win at the Britannia and moves the Canaries above the Potters on the table.
