Norwich opened up a four-point lead at the top of the SkyBet Championship with a 2-0 win against Coventry at St. Andrew's.

Teemu Pukki and Emi Buendia combined twice for a goal each as the damage was done before half-time, while Republic of Ireland international Adam Idah was introduced as a substitute for the league leaders late in the second-half.

Substitute Morris broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute, meaning the former Shrewsbury and MK Dons striker has now scored in back-to-back games for the first time since October 2017.

Mowatt then doubled the advantage in the final minute, rendering Adam Armstrong's stoppage-time reply – his 20th goal of the season – a mere consolation as the Reds followed up their win over Brentford.
