  1. Brighton miss the chance to seal the deal

    FT: Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    But that otherwise includes our coverage of tonight's match at Carrow Road. Many thanks for joining us, it's been a blast.

    If you're missing us already, here's James Law's rather fine report of everything you might've missed...

    Norwich City 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

    David Stockdale

    Goalkeeper David Stockdale scores two own goals as Brighton lose at Norwich to miss out on sealing the Championship title.

  2. Coming up on Monday...

    FT: Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    • Newcastle v Preston (19:45 BST)

    And, last but not least, the weekend's final game in the EFL sees promotion-chasing Newcastle United play Preston North End.

    As I said a few moments ago, there is a chance the Magpies could join Brighton in sealing promotion to the top flight if things fall kindly for them before Monday.

    We'll just have to wait and see on that score.

  3. Coming up on Sunday...

    FT: Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    • Aston Villa v Birmingham (12:00 BST)

    This looks a tasty little fixture, doesn't it? Birmingham City, with Harry Redknapp at the helm, will be hoping to secure a vital three points in their fight against Championship relegation.

    Not that former Blues boss Steve Bruce is planning to do his old employers any favours, mind you...

    Steve Bruce

    Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce does not want to see old club Birmingham City go down but is keen to win Sunday's derby.

  4. Coming up on Saturday...

    FT: Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    • Brentford v QPR
    • Bristol City v Barnsley
    • Burton v Leeds
    • Huddersfield v Fulham
    • Nottm Forest v Reading
    • Rotherham v Ipswich
    • Sheff Wed v Derby
    • Wigan v Cardiff
    • Wolves v Blackburn

    We've got nine Championship fixtures to tuck into on Saturday, with plenty to play for at both ends of the table. Wigan, in fact, could even be relegated tomorrow if results go against them.

    We've also got a full programme of League One and League Two matches, with Swindon Town and Leyton Orient also facing the drop, while Bolton could seal promotion back to the second tier.

    We'll have live text commentary on the BBC Sport website from 14:00 BST.

  5. How it stands...

    FT: Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    Championship top six

    Not that much changed tonight, but here's a quick look at the top six of the Championship table anyhow.

    Brighton still have a couple of games left to seal the title. Newcastle, who face Preston on Monday, could actually be playing for promotion themselves if results go their way tomorrow.

    And, speaking of tomorrow, here's what's coming up this weekend...

  6. 'We've got to challenge next season'

  8. FULL-TIME

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    David Stockdale

    Game over. Two David Stockdale own goals, three Norwich City points.

    Brighton & Hove Albion will have to wait to secure the Championship title.

  9. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    I think I've enjoyed hearing about your goalkeeper hat-trick memories about as much as I have watching this second half. It's not been the best.

    Just 60 seconds left.

  10. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    The 90 minutes are up, but we'll have three minutes of added time.

    The Brighton fans are still cheery enough, at least...

  11. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    I say dawdle, but Tomer Hemed just had half a chance to spark this game into life at last, breaking through down the middle and with Chuba Akpom alongside him and unmarked.

    But, rather summing up Brighton's night, he over-runs it and the opportunity goes begging.

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    James Maddison is on for Alex Pritchard as we continue to dawdle towards the final whistle.

    Perhaps a little peep into why Brighton's star man was withdrawn with the best part of half an hour to go?

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    The Canaries are cruising here, as Wes Hoolahan comes on for Josh Murphy.

    Norwich, by the way, still haven't actually had a shot on target this evening.

    Five minutes to go.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    A final Brighton change sees Glenn Murray come off for Chuba Akpom.

  16. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    David Stockdale

    We're into the final 10 minutes at Carrow Road, then.

    A reminder, if you're joining us late, that two David Stockdale own goals are currently separating the two teams.

  17. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    Norwich are back on the ball now, though, again pinging it around and keeping Brighton at arm's length.

    I've no doubt the Seagulls would spark into life if they are able to pull one back, but it has felt a bit after the Lord Mayor's show from the Premier League new boys tonight.

  18. Post update

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    That's a bit more like it from Glenn Murray, who spins on the corner of the penalty area and sends a rasping drive towards the near post of John Ruddy's goal, albeit just fizzing over the Canaries crossbar.

    Evan Pritchard: Beeb, you should be a bit jealous. It's lovely day here in Winnipeg. Go Norwich! A Newcastle Supporter

    It's alright for some, Evan, that's for sure! And I've just got so much time for these two little tales...

    Jay Singh-Gelling: Our U13 goalie once scored a hat trick of ogs. He had refused to wear keeper gloves and sported Gabor Kiraly-esque trackies 

    Abi Goulding: I used to play in goal for my university, and one match we lost 15-0. I probably managed to score an own-goal hat-trick somehow...

    Norwich 2-0 Brighton

    ... Which also means these scarves, photographed earlier this week, are going to have to be shelved for a little longer.

    Aside from being a bit premature, does anyone else get bugged when "Premiership" is used instead of "Premier League"?
