Norwich City extended their unbeaten run to eight Premier League games with a 2-1 win at home to Sunderland on Sunday that left the visitors just a point above the relegation zone.

Goals from Sebastien Bassong and Anthony Pilkington put Norwich 2-0 up and although Craig Gardner replied before halftime, Martin O’Neill’s side could not find an equaliser despite a spate of second-half opportunities.

Sunderland remain one place above the bottom three, albeit with a game in hand on most of the teams around them, while Chris Hughton’s Norwich climb one place to 12th.
