Norwich paid tribute to the club's former manager John Bond with a minute's silence ahead of their Capital One Cup tie against Doncaster at Carrow Road, after he passed away aged 79.

Former West Ham defender Bond, an FA Cup winner as a player in 1964, started his managerial career with Bournemouth and led them to promotion from the old Fourth Division at the end of his first season in charge.

However, it was at Norwich during the mid-1970s that Bond developed into one of the game's most colourful characters, taking the Canaries back up into the top flight and to the 1975 League Cup final, which they lost to Aston Villa. He remains the club's second-longest serving manager and was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame.
