Hoolahan: Scored winner

Wes Hoolahan took advantage of a defensive slip to score the only goal of the game against Carlisle and extend Norwich's run to four straight wins.

Hoolahan took advantage of an error by veteran midfielder Graham Kavanagh to slot the ball home from eight yards and end the Cumbrians' own four-game unbeaten run.

Defender Ian Harte and winger Matty Robson were both denied at close quarters as Carlisle tried to break down a solid Norwich rearguard in the first half.

But the Canaries were playing good possession football and Carlisle-born skipper Grant Holt was only kept out by a valiant last-ditch challenge from Tom Taiwo.

A badly judged back header by Harte nearly let in Adam Drury, and it was a series of errors that enabled the visitors to grab the lead just before half-time.

Chris Martin's cross from the left eluded both Harte and Richard Keogh, and when Kavanagh slipped in attempting to clear, Hoolahan pounced on the loose ball to slide a shot home from eight yards.
