Leeds' fine start to the season continued with a 1-0 win at Norwich.

The Canaries are looking to bounce back to The Premiership at the first time of asking, but they found a Leeds side in determined mood and Rob Hulse's second-half effort secured maximum spoils for The Whites.

Leeds are a team on a high at present and Shaun Derry went close in the early moments with a fizzing drive.

Norwich had chances of their own and Leon McKenzie headed wide from a Dean Ashton cross.

Leeds goalscorer Hulse crashed a header against the bar, while at the other end McKenzie and Ashton both squandered clear openings.

Both sides were keen to secure all the points and Norwich striker Darren Huckerby fired wide and Jim Brennan also went close.

Norwich were made to pay for failing to convert their chances when Hulse turned and fired in the winner on 67 minutes, following neat work from Frazer Richardson.
