  • FULL TIME. Norwich 2 Sunderland 1.

  • A Gardner free-kick is handled superbly by Bunn, preventing the ball from spilling out into a crowd of players and that should be game over.

  • Bardsley launches the ball up towards Wickham, with Tettey on hand to clear as Sunderland stage a late charge on the Norwich goal.

  • Incredibly unlucky for Sessegnon as the forward reaches Bardsley's pass before driving the ball across goal, which clips Bennett and then deflects back off the Sunderland forward, the result a Norwich goal kick.

  • Larssson's game comes to an end as Vaughan takes his place.

  • Sessegnon plays in Rose and as the left-back goes down on the edge of the area under Whittaker neither a foul or a free-kick for simulation is given.

  • Hoolahan heads off to a warm ovation as Howson comes on to add to the former Leeds contingent on the pitch.

  • Hoolahan continues to battle to work an opening for Norwich, winning back possession off Gardner before a poor ball from Tettey derails the attack, until Rose concedes a free-kick on E Bennett.

  • McClean is replaced by Campbell taking to the field.

  • Good work from Wickham, skipping past Bennett before forcing Bassong into a timely clearance. It's still with Sunderland though, as Rose lets fly with a venomous effort that travels narrowly wide.

  • Pilkington stays onside from Gardner's ball, but he is marshalled extremely well by Cuellar who steals the ball for himself and plays clear.

  • E Bennett ventures down the right, whipping a good ball across the penalty box that sees Holt hurl himself into the ball, firing a speculative half-volley over the bar.

  • Norwich should get a third. Hoolahan feeds in Holt but his second touch allows Mignolet in to smother the ball when the goal was at the striker's mercy.

  • Wickham plants himself into Bassong and the defender goes flying. The medics are on to treat him as play grinds to a halt.

  • Snodgrass is replaced by Elliot Bennett.

  • The corner falls to Rose, whose drilled shot back in lands in the path of Wickham who is caught offside poking home from close range.

  • Norwich clear their lines, and Sessegnon shows good strengh to power away from Whittaker. His ball into Johnson cannons off Bennett and it's another Sunderland corner now.

  • Bassong travels up for a Norwich free-kick, and he gets the flick on before Larsson sorts his feet out and clears behind for a corner.

  • McClean fails to line up himself to shoot from a Larsson corner and Bassong steps in as the Black Cats really start to apply themselves in the final third.

  • Gardner's ball into Sessegnon sees the forward go for goal rather than return the pass. It's a poor effort and his team-mate isn't happy as he expected a return pass.
