Shot-shy Norwich City let Bolton off the hook after missing a series of first half chances in a 0-0 Championship draw at Carrow Road.

James Maddison hit the post and Moritz Leitner fired inexplicably wide from close range, while Ben Alnwick thwarted Nelson Oliveira and Grant Hanley and Josh Murphy both missed excellent chances, as the hosts dominated prior to the interval.

Wanderers dug in after the break with Norwich unable to create the same clear-cut openings in labouring to a seventh home league draw of the season.

Daniel Farke’s squad has now taken 22 points from a possible 51 available at Carrow Road.

Both sides made four changes, City looking to build on a 2-2 draw at leaders Wolves and Bolton on a 1-0 home win over fellow strugglers Sunderland in midweek.

Cuban winger Onel Hernandez was handed his full debut as Farke switched to a 4-1-4-1 formation, dropping his three-at-the-back system due to Timm Klose’s hamstring strain.
