Eight Canaries in weekend action

CARLTON Morris scored the only goal of the game to give Hamilton a precious 1-0 win at Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday.

The young forward took his tally for the season to four by netting with a header on 71 minutes, lifting Hamilton up to eighth place.

A tier further down, Conor McGrandles' Falkirk suffered late heartbreak as Billy King's injury-time goal saw them edged out at Rangers.

The narrow defeat sees the gap from third-place Falkirk to leaders stretched to ten points, with the Bairns having played a game more.

Back in England, goalkeeper Jake Kean produced a number of fine saves in Colchester United's Emirates FA Cup fourth round meeting with Tottenham, but couldn't prevent his side from going down 4-1 at home.

The hosts' cause wasn't helped by losing both centre-backs to injury early on, with Nacer Chadli netting a brace as Spurs eased through.

Meanwhile, Michael Turner made his first Sheffield Wednesday appearance of 2016 as he returned from injury in their FA Cup meeting with Shrewsbury.

The Owls seemed set to progress when holding a 2-1 lead going into the closing stages, only for two Shrews goals to see the Sky Bet League One outfit secure a shock 3-2 victory.

On Sunday, Josh Murphy was also in FA Cup action, playing 67 minutes as MK Dons hosted Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea.

However, the Dons were emphatically brushed aside as a hat-trick from Oscar helped guide Guus Hiddink's side to a 5-1 victory.

Twin brother Jacob Murphy was also on the losing side, completing the full match as Coventry City were beaten 2-1 at home by Scunthorpe United in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

Goals from Tom Hooper and Murray Wallace put the Iron in control, with Adam Armstrong's let penalty proving to only serve as a consolation for the Sky Blues.

Another Academy player who featured at the weekend was Cameron Norman, who played the entirety of Woking's 2-2 home draw with Barrow in the Vanarama National League.

The result leaves Woking one point shy of the play-off places with 14 games remaining.

Finally, Ricky van Wolfswinkel featured as a half-time substitute in Real Betis' 2-1 defeat at Real Sociedad in Spain's La Liga.

The visitors trailed 2-0 at the break, and were unable to salvage anything from the contest despite van Wolfswinkel providing an assist for Ruben Castro early in the second half.
