Norwich move a point off Championship lead thanks to first-half blitz against Birmingham City

“No excuses from us, Norwich deserved to win the game,” admitted Garry Monk, the Birmingham manager, who has been able to sign Swedish free agent Kerim Mrabti despite the club’s transfer restrictions.

“He will need time to settle but we are delighted to have him here,” Monk said.
