ANALYSIS: Michael Bailey’s video verdict as Norwich City dump on Rotherham

Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Championship leaders make it six on the bounce with a determined win at Rotherham United.
Ben Godfrey’s header just five second-half minutes after Semi Ajayi had equalised for the Millers, proved the game’s decisive moment as the Canaries extended their lead at the Championship summit.
Kenny McLean provided the corner for that goal, as well as the strike that put City ahead on the stroke of half-time from Teemu Pukki’s chipped assist.
McLean now has three goals in his last six games, while Norwich took full advantage as automatic promotion rivals Leeds lost at home to Sheffield United earlier in the day.
It is the one remaining international break of the campaign that follows, before City sign off for March with a tough trip to Tony Pulis’ fellow promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough (March 30, 5.30pm).
Just seven fixtures then remain, with City hosting QPR and Reading to kick-off April.
