    That's it for our coverage tonight, as Norwich took their opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the Championship.

    A reminder: there are two early kick-offs in the Championship tomorrow as we return with more live text coverage of the English Football League.

    There's significance at both ends of the table in one of them, as promotion-chasing Sheffield United host relegation-threatened Rotherham at 12:15 GMT.

    We'll also bring you comprehensive coverage of all the action across the three divisions when the 15:00 GMT kick-offs begin.

    Second-placed Leeds United will be aiming to cut the five-point gap to Norwich when they travel to Bristol City.

    Until the next time, goodbye.

    The Canaries are almost there. The fans whistle at Carrow Road.

  9. SUBSTITUTION

    Norwich 1-0 Swansea

    The great thing about not making any substitutions during the second half is that you can then use them to time waste in stoppage time.

    Norwich make another change.

    Striker Teemu Pukki is repalced by defender Timm Klose. Time is almost up.

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Norwich 1-0 Swansea

    Norwich 1-0 Swansea

    Almost a second for Norwich, and it is Teemu Pukki - who else? - who is denied.

    A late corner for the hosts to defend as the ball goes behind off Emi Buendia.

  17. Post update

    Norwich 1-0 Swansea

    Norwich striker Teemu Pukki gets in the box and looks to be in a decent position.

    But then the Finn loses the ball under his feet, is dispossessed and commits a foul.

    He's scored nine goals in his last eight games but looks like he will draw a blank tonight.

  18. Post update

    Norwich 1-0 Swansea

    Emi Buendia scores for Norwich

    Here's another look at Emi Buendia's goal, which separates the sides at Carrow Road.

    As things stand his strike is putting Norwich five points clear at the top of the Championship, and carving out a seven-point gap to third place.

    Unless there is a late twist in the final five minutes (plus stoppages)...
