    Big, safe hands from Mark Bunn to claim a Norwich high ball.

  5. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Mark Bunn, Joleon Lescott - it doesn't matter who keeps it out! Norwich somehow conspire to miss a great chance, the ball hits the post and squirms behind...

  6. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Norwich knocking on the door.. but Villa so far holding firm..

    Five minutes to go though...

  7. CLOSE!

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Jores Okore off the line from a Russell Martin header! It looked for all the world like Robbie Brady's deep cross was on its way to swirling out. 

    Late pressure from Norwich...

    Russell Martin
  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Great defending by Jonny Howson to cool the threat of Gabriel Agbonlahor - Villa had a man over there too. 

    Last throw for Norwich. Matt Jarvis is on, Steven Naismith off.

  9. YELLOW CARD

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Timm Klose goes into the book for a challenge on Gabriel Agbonlahor.

    Meanwhile, Leandro Bacuna is feeling pretty sore after a late tackle from Steven Naismith. No card for him though.

    A few of you are convinced that Norwich's defending is going to send them down...

    Dan Carr: Norwich defend like a Championship side...which is where they will be next season. Neil needs to take responsibility

    Callum Coghlan: As a Norwich fan I am resigned to relegation. 19 goals conceded in 5.5 games, players making constant needless errors every game.

  11. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    The home side are coming forward again. 

    But just when the momentum is building nicely Idrissa Gueye misplaces his pass out wide to Gabriel Agbonlahor...

  12. CLOSE!

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Out come the little flicks now. Jordan Veretout with the outside of the boot down the line. Ashley Westwood and Carles Gil ping the ball back and forth. 

    Veretout finds Bacuna out wide.. he beats his man.. but blazes over the bar! Got to make the keeper work there...

    Leandro Bacuna

  14. CLOSE!

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Already these changes are working. Nathan Redmond slides a ball into the box - it's zipping across goal, all it needs is a touch! But Patrick Bamford can't quite get there, here he comes now, sliding in just a little too late. 

    Close again for Norwich...

  15. CLOSE!

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Steven Naismith plays a lovely weighted ball right into the path of Gary O'Neil, but the Norwich midfielder can only prod wide, every so slightly on the stretch.

    One goal and Villa will surely start to feel the nerves...

    Gary O'Neil
  16. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Dieumerci Mbokani, Nathan Redmond, Patrick Bamford... Norwich have got talent up top, but it's a case of too many cooks as Steven Naismith joins the party, all four tearing down on goal but failing to find the killer pass. 

    Bamford scored a hatful for Middlesbrough in the Championship last season. Can he pop up with one here?

  18. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Villa are flying now. Leandro Bacuna thinks he's Dani Alves, volleying a deep cross from the left well behind. What a difference two goals makes!

  19. Post update

    Aston Villa 2-0 Norwich

    Double change from the Canaries. Nathan Redmond is on for Wes Hoolahan, and Patrick Bamford replaces Youssouf Mulumbu.Very attacking move from Alex Neil.
