Highlights - Norwich 4-1 Gillingham

Norwich 4-1 Gillingham

Norwich   4 - 1   Gillingham

Norwich captain Grant Holt marked his first start of the season with a brace as the Championship side dumped League Two Gillingham out of the Carling Cup.

The Gills actually took the lead when Chris Palmer pounced on a defensive error to finish past keeper John Ruddy.

But after Adebayo Akinfenwa hit the bar Norwich took control, Chris Martin levelling with a neat finish and Holt heading the Canaries into the lead.

Holt then swept in a third and Martin scored one-on-one for Norwich's fourth.


Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk: "The main thing was to win, which we did, and some of our players were terrific going forward, I'm delighted to get to the next round.

"You see how important he [Grant Holt] is, he's not played much football or trained much.

"Two goals will do his confidence the world of good, as it will Chrissy, it doesn't matter who you're playing, it's a difficult thing to do is win." Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler told BBC Radio Kent: "The scoreline flatters them a bit but if you defend the way we did you are going to concede goals aren't you?

"You work on the training ground during the week. Their two centre forwards have got great movement but they are not outstandingly quick. We were far too deep.

"I'm disappointed the players didn't listen. We did work on that, they have been told so, so it will be a tough few days."
