Norwich 3-0 Yeovil

Grant Holt scored his 20th League One goal of the season as Norwich moved seven points clear at the top of the table with victory over Yeovil.

The Canaries took the lead when Wes Hoolahan tucked in a rebound after Holt Holt's header had hit the bar.

Norwich made it 2-0 when Yeovil keeper Alex McCarthy missed his punch and Holt was on hand to convert.

The win was made safe when Holt set up Chris Martin and the the striker's shot trickled into the back of the net.


Norwich City manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:
"I thought we started the game really well, throughout the 90 minutes we always looked a threat, and that's as good as we've looked for a couple of weeks.

"The lads have given me everything, I know they're on top of their game and I've great belief that we'll go and get a goal.

"We did it again, and for the 90 minutes I thought we were exceptional."

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:
"It was a very tough afternoon for us, they were excellent today and stopped us playing.

"We started poorly and I was disappointed, especially for the first goal, and we came up short today.

"When you come to places like Norwich you need everyone to be on top of their game to nick a result, and we definitely didn't do that."
