Lanrewaju Balogun put the visitors 2-3 up in the 43rd minute, until Da Silva got his second in the 51st minute with a free-kick for 3-3.

Florence scored a penalty in the 55th minute but Charlie Moss got the Canaries final leveller for 4-4 in the 68th minute,

The visitors killed the game when Hirst put them into the lead again on 78 minutes, and Balogun chipped Canaries keeper Josh Mollison for 6-4.
