Well, it's been a dramatic day in the EFL, but that's where it ends I'm afraid.

Wolves were held to a goalless draw against Sunderland, Hull came from behind to win in Nigel Adkins' first game in charge, and Birmingham still can't score. They lost 1-0 at Fulham.

We'll be back on Monday for Reading against Cardiff.

Thanks for joining us.

FT: Norwich 3-1 Sheff Wed

That victory for Norwich ends a run of seven games without a win and moves them up to 15th.

Sheffield Wednesday are a place higher in the Championship table.

'It's for the fans'

FT: Norwich 3-1 Sheff Wed

Norwich goalscorer James Maddison tells Sky Sports:

"It's all about getting the three points.

"We've been on this horrible run. Just to get three points, especially at home for our fans, I think we deserve it and they deserve it."


Norwich 3-1 Sheff Wed

That's one of the strangest games you will see.

Norwich, so poor in the first half, scored three goals after the break to claim their first home win since 9 September.

Sheffield Wednesday capitulated.

Nelson Oliveira

Superb penalty from Nelson Oliveira. Game over!

The Portuguese striker pings it right into the corner. Keiren Westwood went the right way but had no chance.

Norwich have come back from a half-time deficit.


Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Barry Bannan brings down Harrison Reed as Norwich break. Penalty.


Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Christoph Zimmermann comes on for Norwich.

He's a giant.

The outstanding James Maddison is replaced.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

There will be four minutes of added time.

Four minutes of torture for Norwich fans.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Daniel Farke is waving his hands, jumping around, barking orders - he looks like a madman.

But he hasn't seen his Canaries side win at home since 9 September.

He isn't going to sit down, that's for sure.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Is there going to be a late twist?

Sheffield Wednesday are the draw specialists in the Championship, but they haven't looked like scoring in this second half.

Norwich have been superb.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

It's amazing what a couple of goals can do.

Carrow Road is absolutely bouncing after this second-half comeback from Norwich.

Wales international Marley Watkins has definitely made a difference - but that's not a great effort from the forward. High and wide from 25 yards.

Reaction: 'Satisfying' to win close game

FT: Nottingham Forest 3-2 Bolton

Nottingham Forest midfielder Barrie McKay celebrates scoring the opening goal against Bolton

Nottingham Forest held on to beat struggling Bolton 3-2, a result which Reds boss Mark Warburton said was "more satisfying" than a four or five goal victory would have been.

"It is easy to talk about the games where you win 4-0 or 5-0 and play fluid, flowing football," he told BBC Radio Nottingham.

"At the end of the season, these are the games you look back on as giving you a vital three points.

"We have spoken in the dressing room about how we can deal with games like this better.

"You have to stand up and fight, but you also have to do what you do well."

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Timm Klose

Norwich goalscorer Timm Klose was quick to tell his players to focus after his goal.

They've got 10 minutes left to survive as Harrison Reed fires an effort over.


Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

The live text commentator's worst nightmare Atdhe Nuhiu replaces Morgan Fox for Sheffield Wednesday.

Norwich also make their first switch. Alex Pritchard comes off for Tom Trybull.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Sheffield Wednesday captain Glenn Loovens clatters into Marco Stiepermann and the Norwich man is down. He looks in some pain.

It was purely accidental from Loovens. Stiepermann does get to his feet a little gingerly.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Sheffield Wednesday are just applying a bit of pressure.

The ball works its way through to Gary Hooper in the box, he finishes easily, but is rightly ruled offside.

15 minutes to go.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Norwich manager Daniel Farke went absolutely bonkers in the dugout when that Timm Klose header hit the back of the net.

The German is under pressure, no doubt. It's goals like that which can save your job.

Reaction: A 'fair result' in promotion battle

FT: Luton 1-1 Notts County

Luton manager Nathan Jones says he thinks his League Two leaders' 1-1 draw with second-placed Notts County was a "fair result" for both sides.

There haven't been any complaints from the Magpies either after a very solid performance at Kenilworth Road.

Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Kieran Lee replaces David Jones for shellshocked Wednesday.

GOAL: Norwich 2-1 Sheff Wed

Timm Klose

That's an absolute bullet of a header from Timm Klose!

Norwich have turned this game on its head in the second half.

The big defender is left completely unmarked and nods in a corner.

Terrible marking from Sheffield Wednesday. Ecstasy for the Canaries.

Norwich 1-1 Sheff Wed

Ross Wallace and Gary Hooper exchange quick passes inside the Norwich box, but the Owls striker can't get his shot away.

Sheffield Wednesday have plenty of attacking threat with players like Barry Bannan, Jordan Rhodes, Wallace and Hooper on the field, but they're struggling to create anything clear cut after the break.

League One players react

More reaction is pouring in from players around the EFL, including from Plymouth's Toumani Diagouraga, who helped lift his side off the foot of the League One table in a 2-1 victory over Gillingham.

Massive 3pts and a first goal for @Only1Argyle buzzing #pafc

Norwich 1-1 Sheff Wed

Carlos Carvalhal is cutting a frustrated figure on the Sheffield Wednesday touchline.

They are the division's draw specialists.

The Owls have 30 minutes left to avoid a 10th stalemate of the season.

Norwich 1-1 Sheff Wed

It's been some turnaround from the Canaries after the break.

Every pass is finding a yellow shirt, the movement is quick and decisive.

For the neutral, it's much more enjoyable to watch too!

GOAL: Norwich 1-1 Sheff Wed

James Maddison

Carrow Road erupts! Norwich are level and deservedly so.

Alex Pritchard smashes a shot at goal, Keiren Westwood palms it out, and James Maddison powers the rebound into the back of the net from 12 yards.

The hosts have been the better side in this second half and they've got some reward.

Championship players react


It's all well and good hearing what the managers have had to say about their teams' performances, but how about from the players themselves? We've gathered a few reactions from across the Championship.

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Daniel Farke must have told his side to get shots away this half.

Nelson Oliveira turns and fires over from 30 yards.

Great intent from the hosts, but still no goals to show for it.

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Norwich have started so, so brightly after the break.

Mario Vrancic bends a superb effort into the side netting from 20 yards.

The home fans are roused.


Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Mario Vrancic goes into the book for dissent.

Silly from the Norwich midfielder.


Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Norwich almost equalise less than a minute into the second half.

Nelson Oliveira meets Alex Pritchard's cross with his head, but Keiren Westwood tips it over.


Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

They're back under way at Carrow Road.

Norwich have made a substitution, Marley Watkins is on for Josh Murphy.

Reaction: 'We stood up for ourselves'

FT: Wolves 0-0 Sunderland

Sunderland defender Marc Wilson tackles Wolves forward Diogo Jota
Rex Features

Sunderland held on for a goalless draw at Championship leaders Wolves, despite having Lee Cattermole sent off for two yellow cards in two second-half minutes.

"I told the players there were two things they could do, duck it or face it," manager Chris Coleman said.

"I wouldn't advise ducking it because, even if you don't get what you want, at least you have a bit of peace of mind if you face the challenge.

"After last week where everything's going right and then we have a man sent off and end up losing 3-1 you could easily come here and crumble but we didn't do that."

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Boos ring around Carrow Road as the half-time whistle blows.

Daniel Farke has a big job on his hands in the Norwich dressing room at the break.

Jordan Rhodes' clever header is the difference between the two sides.

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

There will be a minute of added time.

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

It's like a library inside Carrow Road.

No home win in 91 days may be playing a part in that.

Meanwhile, Gary Hooper has a chance for the Owls inside the box, but his shot from a few yards thumps into the shoulder of Norwich goalkeeper Angus Gunn.

Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Adam Reach finds some space on the edge of the Norwich area but sends his half-volley high and wide.

Another goal for Sheffield Wednesday would surely spell curtains for the goal-shy hosts.

Reaction: 'Definitely not' a classic

FT: Aston Villa 0-0 Millwall

Millwall's Tom Elliott challenges for a header with Aston Villa defender Tommy Elphick

Aston Villa extended their unbeaten run to five games with a 0-0 draw against Millwall, in a match Steve Bruce admitted was "definitely not" a classic.

"I think I’d better be honest with the people and say it was a struggle against a very decent Millwall side who put us under pressure and asked questions," Bruce told BBC WM.

"Let’s be fair, we’ll take a point. It hurts me to say it, but we didn’t have enough.

"All in all, a very difficult afternoon, you take the point and move forward, but certainly we have to play better than that."


Norwich 0-1 Sheff Wed

Nelson Oliveira

Keiren Westwood comes to Sheffield Wednesday's rescue once again.

Ivo Pinto sends in a beautiful bending cross, Nelson Oliveira climbs high and heads towards goal, but Westwood saves on his line.

Norwich are on the front foot.
