Goals from Marco Stiepermann, Christoph Zimmermann and Teemu Pukki secured an important 3-1 victory at The Den, moving the Canaries back to the top of the table and avenging the 4-0 defeat at Millwall during the early stages of Daniel Farke’s reign.

It was a valuable third consecutive win, moving City two points clear of Leeds at the top, who secured an impressive 4-0 home win over West Brom on Friday night to temporarily go top.

City’s victory in south London moved them nine points clear of the fourth-placed Baggies with 11 games remaining though, as well as 18 clear of seventh-placed Derby – who were thrashed 4-0 at Aston Villa today.











That leaves Farke’s title challengers well on course for a play-off place ahead of two successive home matches against mid-table sides, against Swansea on Friday and Hull the following Wednesday.
