Man City 1-0 Norwich

Georgios Samaras netted a last-minute winner on his first appearance of the season to give Manchester City victory over Norwich in the Carling Cup.

Chances were at a premium with Michael Ball going close with a free-kick while Norwich's Lee Croft was off target against his former side.

The hosts finished well and both Kelvin Etuhu and Rolando Bianchi went close.

And Samaras raced onto a Etuhu through ball in the dying stages to seal a place in the last 16.
