  • Deep cross from the left is caught by Guzan and that is that. The whistle goes for full-time.

  • Martin fouls Holt so a late free-kick to Villa that is played short as they run down the clock.

  • There will be two additional minutes.

  • Westwood clears deep from his own area and Agbonlahor is on to it but Ruddy scampers out of his own area smartly to find touch.

  • Unsurprisingly a pretty quiet second half after the fireworks in the first period. Elmander booked for a clumsy challenge on Westwood on the edge of the Villa area.

  • Hooper has the best chance of the second half as he gets in the clear but his side-foot from the edge of the Villa area is palmed away low to his left by Guzan.

  • Norwich continue to plug away and win a throw in the Villa half. Good reception by the way for Holt from both sets of fans.

  • Double Villa change as Grant Holt and Marc Albrighton are on for Benteke and Weimann.

  • Elmander loses the ball but a long pass over the top catches Agbonlahor offside.

  • Weimann flattened on the right and gets a free-kick. Tettey goes off and Jonny Howson replaces him.

  • Shout for a Villa penalty as Agbonlahor's shot from the edge of the area hits Martin on the arm. It deflects behind and a corner is the result.

  • Norwich really short on ideas and an optimistic ball up towards Hooper at the front is easily dealt with.

  • Corner for Villa on the left and Westwood jogs over to take. Vlaar heads wide of the Norwich goal.

  • Good early ball from the right by Martin releases Elmander in the Villa box but he rather snatches at his attempt and the ball skids well wide of the upright.

  • Olsson involved again on the left as he chases down another wayward pass but it goes out for a Villa throw-in.

  • Bad ball back in the direction of Olsson from halfway puts the left-back under pressure but he clears with Agbonlahor closing in.

  • Johnson tries to find a way to the Villa goal from the edge of the area but Vlaaar gets in the way and clears upfield.

  • Weimann and Olsson battle for the ball by the Norwich byline and it goes behind. The former claims for a corner but gets nothing from the official.

  • Cross from the right by Russell Martin is hacked clear of his own area by Baker.

  • Benteke lays the ball back to the edge of the Norwich area and Weimann meets it first time only to sky his effort high into the stand.
