Gassan Ahadme fired home a late winner as Norwich City Under-23s picked up their first victory of the Premier League 2 season at Sunderland on Sunday.
The Canaries suffered an early setback when Lee Connelly opened the scoring, finishing a low cross from Jack Diamond.
However, shortly after Louis Lomas levelled the scores when he emphatically headed home Tom Scully's free-kick.
And it was City who ensured the long trip home was going to be a sweet one as on 77 minutes, Ahadme fired the ball into the bottom corner after a Scully corner wasn't cleared.
City travel to Villa Park to take on Aston Villa in their next game on Saturday. Kick-off is at 2pm.
