Norwich earned their second league win of the season as Jonny Howson's first-half goal proved enough to beat Stoke.
Howson found the net from 25 yards with a low strike in a game of few chances.

"Stoke never looked like they would score and these are three very good points for Norwich.
"Victory was deserved with Stoke just managing one shot on target."
The Canaries started brightly with Ryan Bennett crashing an effort off the crossbar before seeing his rebound saved by keeper Asmir Begovic.
Stoke managed just one attempt on target with Steven Nzonzi forcing Norwich keeper John Ruddy into a low save with his tame long-range effort.
Norwich started well, pressing Stoke high up the pitch, forcing them into sloppy errors, and they came close to breaking the deadlock through Bennett - whose prodded shot on the slide from Robert Snodgrass's corner crashed off the crossbar before Begovic saved the rebound.
The game faded away after a bright start, with Marc Wilson's booking for a reckless challenge on Ricky van Wolfswinkel the only incident of note in the rest of the opening half hour.
It took 32 minutes for Stoke to muster their first attempt on goal, with their erratic passing making it near impossible for them to mount any sustained pressure.
