UTILITA PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: NORWICH
The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Rachel Yankey, Les Ferdinand, Clare Tomlinson, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry has determined that the Utilita Performance of the Week Award should go to Norwich City for their 4-0 victory against Preston North End on Saturday 14th January 2023.
Norwich City Manager David Wagner will receive the Utilita Performance of the Week trophy.
Norwich City's first league game under new head coach David Wagner served up a treat for supporters as they ran out 4-0 winners at Deepdale.
A double each for Kieran Dowell and Teemu Pukki, three of which came in the first half made for a good day out up north for the 1000 travelling supporters.
Pukki completed his double in the second half and sealed the three points.
The early minutes were cagey with both sides getting a feel for the other, and no clear cut chances being made.
However, the Canaries did have the majority of the ball and were probing for an opening.
That came after 13 minutes when Onel Hernández and then Gabriel Sara found themselves swarmed in the penalty area before the Brazilian nudged the ball into the path of Pukki.
The Finn slotted it into the top corner coolly.
