With seven matches left of Norwich City's Sky Bet Championship campaign, we look back at seven of the most important wins this season...

NORWICH CITY 3-1 BLACKBURN ROVERS
19/08/2014, Carrow Road



Bradley Johnson set the tone for his own season to come by curling home the crucial goal in City's 3-1 win over Blackburn back in August.

The Carrow Road crowd was stunned in the very first minute when Tom Cairney's superb volley put Rovers ahead.

Lewis Grabban equalised before half-time but this match will be remembered for Johnson's finish and celebration three minutes from the end.

Grabban then netted a third in stoppage time to put the icing on the cake - read the full Match Report from the game HERE.
 


CARDIFF CITY 2-4 NORWICH CITY
13/09/2014, Cardiff City Stadium



City staged an incredible comeback to beat Cardiff City 4-2 in south Wales in September.

Joe Ralls and Aron Gunnarsson gave the hosts a deserved two-goal lead at the break, but Norwich came out a different side after half-time and got the ball rolling through Martin Olsson's goal.

Wes Hoolahan's emphatic finish levelled proceedings before Michael Turner got the supporters on their feet by bundling his team ahead on 71 minutes.

The shellshocked Bluebirds tried to find a way back into the game but the Canaries finished them off when the impactful Cameron Jerome netted in the closing stages. Click HERE for the Match Report.



WIGAN ATHLETIC 0-1 NORWICH CITY
06/12/2014, DW Stadium



Jonny Howson's early strike earned Norwich City a morale-boosting 1-0 win at Wigan Athletic at the beginning of December.

The midfielder scored on five minutes to settle a scrappy game at the DW Stadium and earn the Canaries their first win in four matches.

It was an industrious display from Neil Adams' team at an important time - read the full Match Report HERE.
 


BOURNEMOUTH 1-2 NORWICH CITY
10/01/2015, Goldsands Stadium



Ten-man Norwich City rallied to earn Alex Neil a superb 2-1 victory over Bournemouth in his first match as manager in January.

Neil, who took charge the day before and started this game sat in the stands, watched from the dugout in the second half as his players earned an against-all-odds victory.

Cameron Jerome's stunning effort won it ten minutes from time after Gary Hooper had equalised Matt Ritchie's opener in the first half.

Jonny Howson was dismissed midway through the second period and Ryan Bennett was forced off with injury just seven minutes after coming on, but somehow Neil's Canaries took the three points. Full Match Report HERE.
 


BLACKBURN ROVERS 1-2 NORWICH CITY
24/02/2015, Ewood Park



Bradley Johnson's scorching drive pushed Norwich City to their fifth win in a row as they came from behind to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1 at Ewood Park in February.

Johnson struck yet another thunderbolt five minutes from time to secure a vital victory for the Canaries that kept them well in touch with their promotion rivals in the Sky Bet Championship.

Cameron Jerome had earlier come off the bench to get the comeback in motion after Alex Baptiste headed Rovers into a first half lead.

NORWICH CITY 2-0 IPSWICH TOWN

City earned a 2-0 victory over Ipswich Town in March to complete the double over their fiercest rivals.

The visitors had their moments but City claimed another cleansheet to continue their remarkable turnaround under the stewardship of Alex Neil in front of a record all-seater crowd of 27,005 at Carrow Road.
