Stockport   1 - 3   Norwich

Stockport 1-3 Norwich

Stockport 1-3 Norwich

Norwich claimed their sixth win in seven matches with a deserved victory over struggling Stockport.

Simon Lappin's free-kick evaded home keeper Owain Fon Williams, allowing Grant Holt to head Norwich ahead.

Paul Huntingdon fouled Chris Martin in the box and Wes Hoolahan doubled Norwich's lead from the spot.

Stockport pulled one back late on when Carl Baker's shot deflected in off Peter Thompson but Holt sealed the Canaries win with a last minute tap-in.


Norwich boss Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"You see the state of the pitch and it's not the greatest due to the rugby last night, but they were great battling away.

"You're never going to play well on that pitch, Barcelona would come and struggle on that the way it is.

"When a team gets a goal back that late on the crowd are galvanised by it, you've got to hang on."
