Canaries clip Magpies wings


Norwich became just the third team to triumph over Newcastle in the league this season as a double from captain Grant Holt helped the Canaries defeat the 10-man Magpies 4-2 at Carrow Road.

Demba Ba's first-half strike cancelled out Wes Hoolahan's opener before Holt powered home a header to make it 2-1 just before the hour.

Dan Gosling saw red for a dangerous two-footed challenge shortly after giving away the ball in the run up to Steve Morison's headed goal and Ba pulled one back for Newcastle, before Holt added his second with eight minutes to go to kill off the game.
