While he didn't feature in the matchday squad, Todd Cantwell was keen to share his joy at our progress in the cup.

Here's what a few members of the national and local press had to say on the match...

Phil Dawkes, BBC Sport

“The Canaries are six points adrift at the bottom and made seven changes for Saturday's tie, which attracted a crowd of just 8,071 to Turf Moor but showcased some excellent attacking football, mainly from the visitors. The Clarets were unable to find a leveller as City demonstrated a stubbornness that will serve them well if they can transfer it consistently to their league performances.”

Jack Gaughan, The Mail on Sunday

“Norwich hope a run in the competition can act as a catalyst for Premier League survival. Grant Hanley and Josip Drmic netted in the space of four second-half minutes, Norwich worthy of their victory and only threatened when Erik Pieters slammed in with 18 minutes left.”

“Daniel Farke rang the changes again, but this was another impressively cohesive display from those in green and yellow. There might not have been any precious league points at stake, but it was another shot of confidence and momentum.

"Farke can harness that feelgood factor on the training pitches of Colney in the coming days. He also has valuable minutes for some of his fringe players and a sense there is genuine competition now. Norwich will travel to Newcastle in buoyant mood. That could be the real legacy of cup progress in the shorter term.”
