Neil Warnock’s men were on a ten-game unbeaten run before losing out to the Canaries, with Teemu Pukki netting the only goal of the match from the spot.

Derby have three draws and eight losses, with one of those defeats coming at Bristol City on Saturday. They’ve now lost three successive league matches.
Things were certainly different last season, where Derby ended the season in tenth. They finished 11 points ahead of Boro in 17th.
But Warnock has managed to turn things around at the Riverside. His outfit boast the best defensive record in the entire league, conceding just six goals.
Derby meanwhile have the worst attacking record with just five goals scored. Another clean sheet for Boro this season is very much a possibility then.
What are Middlesbrough v Derby odds in play?
A home win can be backed at 10/11, with the visitors available at 7/2 to cause an upset and come away with all three points.
A draw between the two sides has been given odds of 12/5.
That was certainly the case in this fixture last season, where the pair battled it out in a 2-2 draw. Lewis Wing opened the scoring that day, with Jason Knight levelling for Derby.
Paddy McNair then dispatched a penalty to put the hosts in front, only for Duane Holmes to once again tie the scoring with a 91st-minute strike.
That meeting in January took place after the Rams had taken all three points from the match at Pride Park in November. A Tom Lawrence double helped the hosts to a 2-0 win over Boro, who had George Saville sent off early on.
A repeat of the 2-2 draw can be backed at 21/1, with another 2-0 Derby win available at 25/1.
