Bolton Score Twice For The First Time Since September And Other Norwich Stats


Here are the stats from Bolton’s late defeat at Norwich City, a match where Norwich carried on their trend of scoring late winners.

If you’re on the other end of it, it hurts…

Norwich tried to pass us to death, and in a way it worked, with them making nearly 700 passes and not being very wasteful either. But we managed to score twice, the first time that has happened since Preston in September, so there’s some progress on our chronic goalscoring problem.
