A much improved defensive performance and a goal from Nelson Oliveira were enough to see off Birmingham City in a game that saw Norwich rarely look in trouble. The return of Timm Klose was key and he was dominant in the air alongside Zimmermann. Another big factor was playing two defensive midfielders in front of the defence in the form of Tettey and Trybull. Both were good, as was Stiepermann at left back, who looks to be first choice there now. A clean sheet and a win gets us back on track ahead of another home game against Burton on Tuesday. MOTM - Timm Klose

Less possession but much firmer defence. It appears that DF has adapted very quickly. There is certainly a plan A B and C on this display. How have we missed Klose since Cambridge? Now just three points off a play off spot. Long way to go but I feel far happier tonight.
