Norwich will pay tribute to former manager John Bond before Wednesday night's Capital One Cup tie against Doncaster at Carrow Road, after he passed away aged 79.

Bond began his managerial career with Bournemouth. However, it was at the Norfolk club during the mid-1970s where Bond developed into one of the game's most colourful characters, taking Norwich back up into the top flight and on to the 1975 League Cup final, which they lost to Aston Villa.

The Canaries said in a statement: "Norwich City Football Club is saddened to learn of the death of former manager John Bond at the age of 79. During his tenure he brought players such as World Cup winner Martin Peters to Norwich City, which helped trigger an exciting brand of attacking football at Carrow Road."
