Norwich’s predicted 2 – 1 win over Wigan was enough to pull them into 7th place and possible contention for a fourth place finish, or at least near those contending. Anthony Pilkington opened the scoring in the 15th minute (his first of this season). He took a pass from Wes Hoolahan into the penalty box and took his shot hard and past the Ali Al Habsi to give Norwich their lead.
Shaun Maloney had himself a well struck goal from the top of the penalty area in the 51st minute to pull them level. This lasted until the 64th minute when Wes Hoolahan put Norwich back in the lead for good.
