Canaries too hot for Posh

Tyrone Barnett missed a decent chance to put Posh ahead after 12

minutes, heading George Boyd’s cross over from close range on

Saturday. But Norwich stepped it up and, after threatening to take

the lead, they finally did so in the 32nd minute, Steve Morison

poking the ball home after the Posh defence failed to clear a Simon

Lappin cross. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing fired over for the hosts just

before the break while City goalkeeper Declan Rudd denied Barnett

and Paul Taylor. Norwich doubled their advantage with five minutes

left when Grant Holt set up fellow substitute James Vaughan, who

rifled his angled shot into the roof of the net.
