  1. Seven points from their last nine for Norwich, and on the back of their midweek cup win, things look a great deal brighter for the Canaries.

  2. Full time at Carrow Road. They have back-to-back home wins in the Premier League, whilst Stoke are now 15 away games without a win in the league. It wasn't a great game, but Norwich did enough to beat a Stoke side that just lacked a spark of creativity.

  3. 90+3

    Matthew Etherington booked for some afters which caused a small ruckus on the pitch

  4. 90+2

    John Ruddy claims the ball and we have a skirmish on the pitch

  5. 90+1

    Ryan Shawcross has been put up front by Tony Pulis, but he is caught offside chasing the ball

  6. 90

    Into four minutes of injury time

  7. 89

    N'Zonzi fouls Bradley Johnson in his attempt to make anuisance of himself in the Norwich box

  8. 88

    Pilkington's free kick claimed by Begovic

  9. 86

    Final Norwich change, Wes Hoolahan off for Steve Morison. Man of the Match for me Hoolahan.

  10. 85

    Ryan Shawcross booked for hauling back Grant Holt

  11. 84

    Final substitution for Stoke. Glenn Whelan on for Andy Wilkinson

  12. 83

    Norwich still seem comfortable defending out this game. There is no concerted pressure from toke as yet

  13. 81

    Charlie Adam fouls Wes Hoolahan, and that's a last warning for the Stoke midfielder, on a booking

  14. 80

    Anthony Pilkington is tackled by referee Andre Marriner, and voices his frustration very vocally

  15. 78

    As we move towards the last ten minutes, you can hear the nerves from the Norwich fans. This win would mean so much to the club in terms of their league position

  16. 77

    kenwyne Jones should score after taking the ball down in the box, but somehow drags wide from nine yards. Should at least of hit the target

  17. 76

    Norwich now look happy to hold onto what they have got, and you cannot blame Chris Hughton for that mindset. What have Stoke got to break that hold?

  18. 74

    Acrobatic attempt from Peter Crouch, but he can only hit the ball over the bar. Decent effort though

  19. 73

    Header from Kenwyne Jones, and it is a smart save from Ruddy. Good to see Jones straight into the action, however

  20. 71

    Can only assume that Garrido had a knock, because he had played well until that point
