Sunderland ripped apart nine-man Norwich with three goals in the space of 10 first-half minutes to win their Carling Cup second-round tie 4-1 at Carrow Road.

The League One side, under new boss Paul Lambert, were undone far too easily on the break as Teemu Tainio set the ball rolling for the Barclays Premier League club, before Andy Reid netted a well-taken double.

Wes Hoolahan reduced the deficit just after the hour, only for Owain Tudur Jones to quickly deflect a corner into his own net before Norwich finished with nine men when last man Michael Spillane was sent off for a professional foul on Frazier Campbell, and keeper Ben Alnwick suffered a cut to his face.
