Norwich   2 - 1   Hartlepool

Norwich 2-1 Hartlepool

Norwich 2-1 Hartlepool

Norwich fought back from a goal down to secure a club record 11th straight home win in a single season to stay top of the League One table.

Hartlepool took the lead through defender Neil Austin after a powerful 25-yard strike in the 26th minute.

But the hosts were level within 63 seconds when Cody McDonald headed home Russell Martin's cross.

Five minutes later debutant Michael Rose scored with an angled finish to make it 44 out of 48 points for City.


Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"A really tough game, and I knew it would be due to last Saturday and Tuesday at Wallsall, then having to go again today.

"Hartlepool scored and were doing really fine against us, they're a hard-working side but we had a great response which got us back into the game.

"It's phenomenal what the lads have done, they deserve all the credit."
