Norwich's march towards the Coca-Cola League One title continued as the Canaries came from behind to win 3-1 at Huddersfield.

Neal Trotman headed the hosts into the lead after just three minutes, but Paul Lambert's in-form side levelled midway through the second half when Grant Holt made it 27 goals for the season.

A brace for substitute Stephen Elliott (74 & 85) gave the Norfolk side a 24th league win, which moved them another step closer to a swift return back to the Championship.

Second-placed Leeds slipped up again, losing 1-0 at Southampton to Dan Harding's first-half goal.

Norwich are now 12 points clear of Charlton after the Addicks slumped to a 4-0 defeat at play-off challengers Millwall.

Darren Ward (44) set the Lions on their way, an own goal from Christian Dailly (74) made it 2-0 before the win was rounded off by a brace for Steve Morison (76 & 81).

Colchester missed the chance to capitalise as they went down 2-1 at Carlisle, who had played the second half with only 10 men following Tom Taiwo's red card.

Clive Platt (66) put the U's ahead, but the home side fought back through Ben Marshall (68) and Jason Price (73).

Swindon won 1-0 at Brighton through Charlie Austin's (69) second-half goal to keep up their play-off hopes.
