2017/18 English League Championship, Regular Season
  • Ivo Pinto (70')
  • James Wilson (6')
  • Clayton Donaldson (68')

Norwich City 1-2 Sheffield United

Norwich's midweek FA Cup endeavours caught up with them as they went down to a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United in the Sky Bet Championship at Carrow Road.
The Canaries took Premier League champions Chelsea all the way to penalties in their FA Cup third-round replay at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
Those efforts seemed to have had an impact when James Wilson, on his full debut, put the Blades ahead in the sixth minute, turning the ball home following a corner.
The visitors doubled their lead in the 68th minute when Clayton Donaldson capitalised on an under-hit Alex Tettey pass-back to slot past goalkeeper Angus Gunn.
Norwich rallied and reduced the deficit within two minutes as captain Ivo Pinto headed in James Maddison's cross but the home side could not muster an equaliser.
