13 Canaries currently away from Carrow Road

GARY Hooper netted his 200th professional career goal on Sunday as Sheffield Wednesday came from behind to win 4-1 against Wolves in the Sky Bet Championship.

Two goals from Fernando Forestieri gave the Owls a half-time advantage at Hillsborough, following Benik Afobe's earlier penalty for the visitors.

Daniel Pudil extended the lead just before the hour-mark, before Hooper struck in the final minute to wrap up a comprehensive victory.

Defender Michael Turner missed out on the matchday squad as Wednesday moved to within one place of the play-offs.

Unbelievably happy and proud to have scored my 200th professional career goal today.

Another Canary on target was Josh Murphy, who came off the bench to score for MK Dons in their game away to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

However, his 81st minute effort proved in vain as early goals from Nelson Oliveira and Ryan Mendes saw Forest secure a 2-1 win.

Should have left the game with at least a point! after a poor start lads were quality!Thanks 2 fans 4 sticking by us

Elsewhere, Elliott Bennett played the opening 87 minutes as Bristol City earned a 1-1 draw with QPR at Ashton Gate.

Junior Hoilett put the away side in front early in the second half, before ex-City forward Aaron Wilbraham rescued a point for his side ten minutes from time.

Great spirit and performance after the defeat in mid-week. Unlucky not to get all 3pts but a good point going in to the busy festive period

Meanwhile, Tony Andreu featured as a late substitute for Rotherham United as they registered an impressive 2-0 home victory over Hull.

Goals in either half from Lee Frecklington and Joe Newell confirmed the result, with defender Harry Toffolo absent from the Millers' matchday squad.

In Sky Bet League One, Louis Thompson played just under an hour as Swindon Town claimed their fourth straight win with a 1-0 success at Shrewsbury.

Nicky Ajose netted the decisive goal on 34 minutes, taking Martin Ling's side up to 14th in the table after a difficult start to the campaign.

Remi Matthews was an unused substitute as Burton Albion were held at home by Doncaster Rovers, while Jacob Murphy missed out on Coventry City's squad for their 1-1 draw with Oldham.

In the Vanarama National League, Cameron Norman played 82 minutes as Woking recorded a thumping 5-1 win at Gateshead.

An emphatic victory proved enough to lift The Cards above their opponents on goal-difference, having gone into the game three points behind the Tyneside outfit.

Unreal ♦️👌 #cards

A tier further down the footballing pyramid saw Academy goalkeeper Ben Killip in action, representing Lowestoft Town away to Telford United.

The stopper was unable to prevent his side from being beaten however, with Dwayne Samuels' solitary goal settling the contest.

Over the border, Carlton Morris played 82 minutes as Hamilton Academical were convincingly beaten away to Dundee in the Scottish Premiership.

All the goals came inside the opening half-hour as The Dees strolled to a comfortable 4-0 win which leaves Hamilton in eighth place.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel appeared as a 70th minute substitute during Real Betis' 0-0 draw at home to Sevilla in Spain's La Liga.
