Derby 3-1 Norwich

Derby's recent revival continued with a good win over in-form Norwich.

The home side looked in control after a bundled-effort by Paul Green and a thumping Rob Hulse header from Kris Commons's cross put them two goals up.

Hulse struck the bar before Norwich got back in the match when John Kennedy rose to head in Sammy Clingan's cross.

Norwich took charge and would have been level had Leroy Lita not put a good chance wide but Przemyslaw Kazmierczak sealed it for Derby late on.

Derby boss Paul Jewell said:

"For an hour we played as well as we have all season. At 2-0 we were in control and in the end it could have been four or five.

"But they goal a goal back and it was tense for a while."

"We are making strides, but there is a lot more to come from the players. I've got a three-year contract and I want us to get better each year."

Canaries boss Glenn Roeder told BBC Radio Norwich:

"I thought we started brightly but we allowed Derby back into the game too easily.

"The first goal was poorly defended, and this happened too often during the game.

They were able to get the ball to their striker's feet too easily from throw-ins.

"We'd spoken about it, worked on it, what's called front shielding, but we didn't do it."
