On This Day in 1993... City win at the Bridge

16 October 2019

The 1992/93 season was one of the best in Norwich City's history, but the following year wasn't short of memorable results either, including this one 26 years ago.

Ruel Fox gave Mike Walker's City the lead against Chelsea in the 23rd minute when he latched onto a Mark Bowen cross from the left wing.

A long-range Glenn Hoddle effort sailed just over the bar as the Blues went into the half-time break 1-0 down.

The link up of Bowen to Fox continued to give Chelsea problems, as their midfield and defence appeared incapable of controlling the movement of the pair.

City's second goal came by way of some intense pressing from Jeremy Goss in Chelsea's half. After winning the ball back, he sent Mark Robins through on goal, who squared it to Chris Sutton to tap into an empty net.

Norwich were unable to put the game to bed completely, and Chelsea almost punished them as Gavin Peacock's header brought the score to 2-1 with seven minutes remaining.

Regardless, City held on for a sixth win out of eleven games in the season.
