Norwich City won a six-goal classic at Coventry as they hit four away goals for the second Saturday running.

David Wagner’s Norwich stunned the Sky Blues with three goals in the space of 12 first-half minutes – a Michael Rose own goal, added to by Onel Hernández and Josh Sargent.

From 3-0 down in the 18th minute, Coventry responded with two quick-fire goals of their own from captain Jamie Allen and then a second from a powerful left-foot shot by top scorer Viktor Gyokeres credited to Kasey Palmer.

From 3-2 up at half-time, Kieran Dowell fashioned an excellent fourth goal for himself on 65 minutes.

That meant four goals away from home for Norwich for the second week running after last Saturday’s 4-0 win at Preston – and it was also a second successive game in which Coventry have let in four, following the FA Cup third round exit to non- league Wrexham.
