Norwich   3 - 0   Huddersfield

Norwich v Huddersfield

Norwich 3-0 Huddersfield

Norwich kept up the pressure to get into League One's automatic promotion places with a win over Huddersfield.

The visitors lost possession to allow Wes Hoolahan to run through on goal and plant a shot into the bottom corner to put the Canaries ahead.

Chris Martin was then found by Hoolahan and he fired in after Peter Clarke failed to intercept the pass.

Norwich defender Gary Doherty finished Huddersfield off when he hammered home from 10 yards.


Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"I thought the first half there was a little bit of tiredness, which I knew would happen. The second half, I thought we were excellent.

"What's said in the dressing room is private, but you get a response and I thought in the second half we bossed the game.

"Whoever comes here, we have to try and win more games than not, you had the fans again today, 25,000 people coming, at the minute the club's on a winning streak."

Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark told BBC Radio Leeds:

"Any defeat hurts and to lose like that is very, very disappointing.

"We played excellently in the first half, but I told the players at half-time that the first half was forgotten and they'd be remembered for what happened in the second half.

"So we are going to be remembered for a poor half of football where we gave away two very poor goals from our point of view.

"We'll work very hard to put this right and get it right on Boxing day.
