23 February 2016

City have won their last four matches on this day

FEBRUARY 23 has been good to the Canaries in recent seasons, with some significant results achieved.

Back in 2013, Kei Kamara's goal helped them come from behind to beat Everton 2-1 in a memorable Premier League match at Carrow Road.

The Sierra Leone international made 11 appearances for the Club while on loan from MLS outfit Sporting Kansas City, with that moment against the Toffees the certain highlight.

Grant Holt's stoppage time winner completed the turnaround, and Chris Hughton's side went on to secure their top flight status with an 11th-placed finish.

A year later, Robert Snodgrass' strike proved decisive as City edged out Tottenham Hotspur by a single goal at Carrow Road.

Scotland winger Snodgrass, who went on to win the Anglian Home Improvements Player of the Season award that year, curled beyond Hugo Lloris to lift his team up to 14th in the table.

In 2010, the Canaries' League One promotion charge picked up more momentum thanks to Oli Johnson's late brace against Southend United.

City's opponents held the lead after Scott Vernon's strike just before half-time, but Paul Lambert's side demontrated their title credentials by coming back to secure the points after Johnson's 78th and 90th-minute goals.

Two years earlier, a solitary goal from Jamie Cureton was enough for Norwich to see off Barnsley 1-0 in their Championship meeting at Carrow Road.
