Highlights: Norwich 2-1 Blackburn

By on 28th April 2019

Norwich City confirmed their return to the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road on Saturday evening.

The Canaries need one point in their final game of the season against Aston Villa to win the Championship title.

Captain Marco Stiepermann eased any nerves his teammates of supporters may have had heading into the game when he drilled low into the bottom corner from outside the box to give the home side the lead on 13 minutes.

Norwich looked to be in cruise control less than 10 minutes later when Mario Vrancic’s sublime 25-yard strike found the top corner to double their lead.

However, Blackburn hit back almost immediately through Lewis Travis but Daniel Farke’s side were able to see out the game comfortably, despite not adding to the score. Heading into the game a point would have been sufficient to seal promotion.

Blackburn Rovers are sitting 14th in the Championship table, essentially with nothing to play for.
