Norwich City supporters have praised the effort of Daniel Farke’s team after holding Chelsea to a 0-0 draw at Carrow Road in the FA Cup third round.

After a match of few chances, against a much-changed Blues side, City held out to earn a Stamford Bridge replay later this month and ensure their name goes into the hat for the fourth round draw.

That draw is scheduled to be made at around 7.10pm on Monday and is being televised on BBC Two and BT Sport, as well as on both of the broadcasters’ websites.

The last 32 will contest those ties over the weekend of January 26-28, with the winners to claim £90,000 in prize money.

The Canaries return to Championship action next Saturday when they travel to high-flying Bristol City.
