Teemu Pukki's 17th goal of the season in the 13th minute was quickly cancelled out by Che Adams' 13th of the campaign for Birmingham.

However, Norwich quickly restored their control with two goals in three minutes from midfielders Mario Vrancic and Tom Trybull - and did not look in any danger after that.
