Under-23s beat Derby County in latest pre-season test

1 August 2019

Norwich City's Under-23s produced a terrific performance to beat Derby County in their penultimate pre-season 4-3.

In a topsy-turvy game, City came out on top with Tom Scully [pictured] scoring the winner with just two minutes left on the clock.

Daniel Adshead gave the Canaries the lead early on, profiting after Aidan Fitzpatrick's low drive was parried by the Derby goalkeeper.

Derby soon responded when City failed to clear a corner and they doubled their lead shortly after, before Fitzpatrick found the net after a superb through ball from Saul Milovanovic.

Fitzpatrick then ratlled the post before Derby regained their advantage, however City once again roared back and managed to win the game thanks to goals from Gassan Ahadme and Scully.

Norwich: Mair; Thomas, Lomas, Famewo, Nizet; Fitzpatrick, Milovanovic (Payne), McAlear (Scully), Hondermarck; Adshead, Ahadme

Goals: Adshead, Fitzpatrick, Ahadme, Scully
