In the 22nd minute Mario Vrancic restored Norwich’s advantage with a low, left-footed drive into Lee Camp’s bottom corner from outside the penalty area and within three minutes an unmarked Tom Trybull, enjoying a rare start, headed in an Emiliano Buendia corner from six yards to score his first league goal of the season.

Birmingham rallied late on, forcing a succession of corners in the closing minutes but, despite the threat from Adams’ muscular presence, Norwich held out.The defeat meant Garry Monk’s side slipped to ninth in the table.
