Burnley move top after late win over Norwich



Jay Rodriguez’s late penalty sent Burnley top of the Championship as they beat Norwich City 1-0 at Turf Moor.

The Clarets dominated the first period but could not conjure a worthwhile effort on goal as they nullified the Canaries.

Norwich’s Todd Cantwell and Burnley’s Josh Brownhill went close in the opening stages of the second half as chances remained few and far between.

But Rodriguez converted powerfully from the spot in the 82nd minute after Grant Hanley was penalised for handball.

The win was Burnley’s fourth in five games and extended their unbeaten run to 15 games as they moved two points clear at the top.

Norwich stay seventh, a point off the play-off places after a fourth loss in five games for Dean Smith’s men.
