Norwich Win!

Norwich City 1 - 0 West Bromwich Albion

Stadium: Carrow Road (27,033) Attendance: 5,378

R Martin 35

Jonathan Lack : Firstly, I'm slightly disappointed that only 5000 people turned out tonight. Two-Premiership clubs going head-to-head? 5000?, it's ridiculausly funny. Did the turnstiles stop working or something?. Any How the team played well, we kept WBA Attacking options to a minimum as we dominated posession. Leaving them to not even register 1 shot on target. I'm very pleased with my defence. Solid as a rock tonight.

Jonathan Lack : It was a good win for us, Luca Toni, and Royston Drenthe both getting on the score sheet is good for them, as they are new players, and settling into the team very well. I played 5-4-1 which is a defensive approach because that's how we'll be playing this season. The Squad seemed to adapt very well.
