Bristol Rovers   0 - 3   Norwich

Bristol Rovers 0 -3 Norwich

Bristol Rovers 0 -3 Norwich

League One champions Norwich ended their away campaign with a comfortable victory at Bristol Rovers.

Chris Martin put Paul Lambert's team in front with a low strike after an error from defender Daniel Jones.

Anthony McNamee set up substitute Oli Johnson to score from the edge of the box with his first touch.

Stephen Hughes smashed home from close range after 68 minutes, while Rovers striker Darryl Duffy headed against the crossbar from Ben Swallow's cross.


Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope told BBC Radio Bristol:
"It was a frustrating afternoon. It was our own deficiencies and sloppiness with the ball which gave them lifts to attack us.

"I wouldn't imagine many teams would have been in a top 10 position all year having a minus goal difference.

"It's something we need to address and there will be movement in that area over the summer."

Norwich City manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:
"I thought we were excellent from start to finish. We changed it around a little and the lads done great."

"I said to the players, don't come here and try and showboat because you end up getting beaten heavily if you do that.

"The fans we've got, we owe it to them to try and win as many games as we can."
