A decent first half from the Canaries saw them take a 3-1 lead after conceding the game's first goal. The second half was disappointing though and Swindon could and should have at least equalised late on. James Maddison and Wes Hoolahan, with Harrison Reed for back up, were sublime in some of their passing in that first period and Maddison is more than ready to make the first team step up. The two goals conceded were from needless set pieces, exactly what you'd expect from a League Two side but City eventually held out to progress to the next round. MOTM: James Maddison
