Five Canaries see competitive action

ELLIOTT BENNETT played a vital role in Bristol City's 1-0 victory over Wolves on Tuesday evening, providing the assist for their winning goal.

The 26-year-old winger's cross on the stroke of half-time was headed home by Jonathan Kodjia, helping to move City four points clear of the relegation-zone in the process.

Facing the Club where he began his professional career, Bennett played 78 minutes before being substituted.

Brilliant win last night for the team. Unbelievable character after weekend result. Day off after 3pts is so much more enjoyable ⚽️🔴

Josh Murphy completed the full match for MK Dons as they edged to an important 1-0 victory over struggling Charlton Athletic.

The game was settled by Dean Bowditch's first half strike, earning the Dons their first win in four outings.

Fellow Academy graduate Harry Toffolo also played 90 minutes as Rotherham United were narrowly beaten at Middlesbrough.

An early goal from former England wide-man Stewart Downing proved enough to give the hosts all three points, leaving United bottom of the division.

Tony Andreu featured for the opening 87 minutes before being replaced.

Boys dug in against a very good Middlesbrough side! Thank you to the fans that travelled.. Big game against Ipswich Saturday! We go again!

Elsewhere, Gary Hooper an unused substitute in Sheffield Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion at Hillsborough.

Michael Turner missed the match through injury, with his last Owls appearance coming against Hull on Saturday, October 17.

Finally, in Sky Bet League One, Jacob Murphy’s Coventry won a thrilling game 4-3 against Barnsley at the Ricoh Arena.

Murphy himself took to the field after most of the drama had already occurred, coming on as a substitute just after the hour-mark.

Back to back wins! We keep pushing on! #pusb
