Leeds United blown off course as  Norwich go top of Championship table

Instead of clapping and cheering, the sound of collective disgruntlement returned to the old stadium. The locals can only hope a familiar sense of foreboding does not take its place.

Patrick Bamford’s late goal was largely irrelevant, even if he will be happy after returning from another long injury lay off.
