Brentford goal machine Josh Clarke pulls a goal back. It’s just a consolation though. Ironic songs of we’re going to win 4-3. Stemmed from Nico Yennaris putting a tackle in in the Norwich half.

Three minutes added

Norwich are just running the clock down here now.

There’s 15 minutes here but the referee may as well blow the final whistle. Norwich make their final change of the evening.

Watkins fouled. Barbet has another free kick.

Henrik Dalsgaard replaces Florian Jozefzoon with Josh Clarke moving up the wing.

GOAL! Norwich make it three

The Canaries go straight through Brentford and Josh Murphy slips the ball through Daniels’ legs to make it 3-0.

Out of nothing, Brentford fashion a chance as Justin Shaibu shows off his control before unleashing a fierce effort that struck the inside of the post.

Hoolahan is booked for a trip on Watkins

Yennaris is fouled. Barbet to take the free kick. It’s miles better than his penalty but Gunn gathers.

Justin Shaibu replaces Neal Maupay as well

Ollie Watkins replaces Theo Archibald

A great free kick to be fair to Vrancic - over the wall and then it dipped into the net.

Goal! Norwich double their advantage

Mario Vrancic gets the ball over the wall and past the despairing Daniels. It’s 2-0 now.

Josh McEachran gives away a free kick on the edge of the area.

Dreadful from Yoann Barbet. He passes straight to Josh Murphy who fires wide.

That was poor from the Bees. A ball straight through the middle finds its way to Josh Murphy. He fizzes a cross that avoids everyone.

We’re back out for the second half. There’s no changes at the break. Speaking to the fans outside, they’d have made three.

You just don’t feel Brentford are going to score this evening. It hasn’t been their day, week, month or season so far. That’s the half time whistle

Nico Yennaris has had better halves. He just lets the ball run at the wrong time and the chance is gone.

Brentford get themselves into trouble but just scramble things clear. It’s evened up more as the half goes on. We’re going to have two minutes of added time.

James Linington is not popular at Griffin Park. Christoph Zimmerman was clearly pulling back Neal Maupay, who was trying to stay on his feet. Nothing given.

Great work from Theo Archibald again, who has really impressed so far. He links up with Kamo Mokotjo whose cross is fired wide by Nico Yennaris.

Dean Smith said at the recent fans’ forum that Barbet was the penalty taker when he was on the pitch. I wonder if it will now be Neal Maupay’s turn after that effort.

Barbet misses a penalty

It’s miles over the bar. Terrible, terrible penalty

PENALTY! Brentford

Brentford have a spot kick of their own as Mokotjo is fouled by Wes Hoolahan. Yoann Barbet is the penalty taker.

THe best bit of rplay from the Bees this evening. Theo Archibald gets down to the byline and fizzes a cross in. Nico Yennaris meets it but his shot is gathered by Gunn. Bees are starting to get into this game.

Great tackle from Jozefzoon after Norwich break down the right. Ivo Pinto was the man denied by Jozefzoon.

Huge cheers as Brentford get a free kick

Vrancic shoots wide as Norwich win another free kick on the edge of the area.
