Norwich Fire Strong Towards Premier League

Norwich are powering towards the Premier League after the Championship leaders eased to a 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday


Teemu Pukki bagged his 23rd league goal of the season and Kieran Dowell doubled the Norwich lead before half-time.

Daniel Farke’s side look odds on to return to the top-fight after last season’s relegation.

The Canaries’ ninth successive league win extended their lead over second-placed Watford to 10 points with 10 games remaining.

Barnsley maintained their play-off charge with a 3-1 win at Wycombe, despite the second-half dismissal of skipper Alex Mowatt.

Barnsley striker Cauley Woodrow scored a first half penalty following Ryan Tafazolli’s challenge on Michal Helik.

Daryl Dike headed Barnsley’s second and, after Mowatt had been shown a straight red card for his challenge on Scott Kashket, the on-loan American added his second.

Uche Ikpeazu scored bottom of the table Wycombe’s late goal as they slide towards relegation.

Birmingham gave their survival hopes a boost as Harlee Dean’s header secured a 2-1 home win against play-off hopefuls Reading in Lee Bowyer’s first match as Blues manager.

Lukas Jutkiewicz headed Birmingham into an early lead and, although Reading equalised through Yakou Meite, Dean’s second-half effort earned them a crucial three points.

Jordy De Wijs headed QPR’s late winner as they fought back from 2-0 down to beat Millwall 3-2 at Loftus Road.

Millwall led 2-0 at half-time through Jed Wallace and Mason Bennett, but Charlie Austin headed QPR back into it and after Stefan Johansen had levelled, on-loan Hull defender De Wijs struck in the closing stages.

Blackburn and Bristol City drew 0-0, while Callum Paterson’s own goal denied second bottom Sheffield Wednesday in a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield
