Norwich   2 - 0   Oldham

Norwich 2-0 Oldham

Norwich 2-0 Oldham

In-form Norwich kept up the pressure on the top two in League One by claiming a comfortable victory over Oldham.

Norwich were rewarded for their early dominance when Chris Martin crossed for Grant Holt to nod home his 19th goal of the season at the back post.

Wes Hoolahan then blasted home from just outside the area via a deflection off Sean Gregan to double the lead.

Norwich had chances to extend their lead, while Oldham created little and sit one point above the bottom four.


Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"I thought we were excellent, some of the football we played was terrific, and we deservedly won the game I thought.

"The way some teams come here and try to defend we have to be patient to try and break them down but I thought some of the football we played was really good."
