Five Canaries in competitive action

CAMERON McGeehan scored the opening goal for Luton Town this weekend as they eased to a 3-0 victory over Hartlepool United in Sky Bet League Two.

The young City midfielder headed his side in front with five minutes gone, before Jake Howells’ penalty doubled the advantage shortly after.

Scott Griffiths completed the scoring 19 minutes from time, with the result keeping alive the Hatters’ hopes of securing a play-off spot.

In Sky Bet League One, Harry Toffolo played just under an hour on Saturday as promotion hopefuls Swindon Town fell to a surprise 1-0 home defeat to already relegated Yeovil Town.

The Glovers took all three points courtesy of James Berrett’s solitary strike, with Mark Cooper’s side now looking destined to finish in the play-offs.

Meanwhile, fellow academy graduate Jacob Murphy faced up to former club Scunthorpe United while representing Colchester United in a high-stakes affair which ended 2-2 at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

It was in that final quarter of an hour that most of the drama unfolded however, as the hosts came from behind to lead the game going into injury-time.

However, they were denied what would have been a crucial win by a late equaliser from Iron substitute Hakeeb Adelakun which sees them remain in relegation trouble.

In the Sky Bet Championship, Michael Turner helped Fulham keep a clean sheet on Saturday as they secured a vital 1-0 win over Blackpool at Bloomfield Road.

The victory practically confirms the survival of Kit Symons’ team, with three games of the regular season remaining.

Further afield, Kyle Lafferty appeared as a half-time substitute in RIzespor’s 3-1 defeat at Istanbul Buyuk in the Turkish Super Lig on Sunday.

Rizespor currently sit seven points clear of the relegation zone, having improved their fortunes during the second half of the campaign.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel remained on the bench during St-Etienne’s 2-2 draw away to Lyon.
