James Maddison’s fantastic finish at Griffin Park has added to his personal collection of superb goals this season.

The 21-year-old’s nutmeg of Ryan Woods and subsequent thumping shot into the top-right corner came in just the fifth minute but proved enough for Norwich City to win 1-0 at Brentford.

Our photographer Paul Chesterton, of Focus Images, had the game’s magic moment covered and you can scroll down to see more of his images from the victory.

Maddison scored his ninth goal of the season, in his 32nd appearance. It was also the fourth match of the season in which he has scored the only goal in a 1-0 away win for the Canaries, following on from victories at Middlesbrough, Ipswich and Bristol City.

It also moves him outright as City’s top scorer with nine goals in all competitions, eight of which have been in the league, one more than has been managed by striker Nelson Oliveira.
