FT Norwich 1 Saints 0
Webb turned down Snodgrass's pen appeal after aggressive Fonte challenge
Lambert's free-kick thuds into the wall...
Redmond unlucky not to have his second when he sprinted past Fonte only to be denied by Boruc
Lambert's clever pass met by Rodriguez, who slid to the ground as he attempted to shoot.
Osvaldo off, Rodriguez on
Norwich substitution: Elmander off for Howson
Davis on for Schneiderlin
1-0 Redmond cut in from the left, as he did at the beginning of the first half, but this time he shrugged off the challenge from Ward-Prowse and fired hard and low and into the bottom left corner from 20 yards out
Lambert given off side after volleying powerfully at Ruddy - replays showed it to be a terrible decision
Ramirez on for Lallana, who didn't look too happy to be coming off
Osvaldo hit the deck after Michael Turner's elbow struck him in the face as they competed for a header
Redmond turned Chambers inside out, crossing for Elmander, whose near-post header went wide
Tottenham's new £30m forward Lamela was Roma's second highest scorer last season to... Pablo Osvaldo. #SaintsFC— @BillySharpFans 31 August 2013
Snodgrass shot into side netting after period of intense Norwich pressure
Dani Osvaldo came close to opening his Saints account when, from Adam Lallana's pass with his back to goal, he spun Michael Turner and had his shot saved by a diving John Ruddy.
HT 0-0 Apologies for the lack of first-half updates, technical problems now resolved ...
4. Nathan Redmond, a summer signing from Birmingham, shot wide for Norwich after cutting in from left
15. Leroy Fer was denied from point-blank range before John Elmander poked wide following a goalmouth melee
17. Wanyama shot wide from 20 yards
19. Lallana's shot appeared to be handled by Bradley Johnson, who blocked with both palms, but ref Howard Webb turned down the penalty appeals.
24. Ward-Prowse free-kick collected comfortably by John Ruddy
30. Callum Chambers, playing ahead of Nathaniel Clyne, shanked a cross from the right.
33. Ward-Prowse did enough to put off Wolfswinkel as he attempted header at far post
35. Redmond ran unchalleneged for several yards, then sold Fonte a dummy and fed Snodgrass before Whittaker's cross flashed across the face of goal
39 Ward Prowse free-kick came back out and Lallana slammed left-foot volley against the outside of left-hand post. Then Wanyama fired over from Osvaldo’s lay-off.
Osvaldo in action against Norwich.
At Norwich. Looking forward to seeing Osvaldo's first #saintsfc start. Rodriguez and Ramirez on bench an indication of the depth in attack.— @gordonsimpson 31 August 2013
Also interesting to see Calum Chambers keep place ahead of Clyne. Shows how well he has played in first two games. #saintsfc— @gordonsimpson 31 August 2013
great atmos at Carrow Road, hard to believe Norwich v #saintsfc was a League One fixture 3 and a half yrs ago.— @simonhwalter 31 August 2013
Beautiful day at Carrow Rd, a fantastic surface currently being sprayed by the sprinklers on the halfway line. Should encourage both sides to zip the ball about this afternoon
Osvaldo better score a few because we all know what happens when fox is in defence.#theyscore #scoremorethanyou #fivethreetosaints #saintsfc— @Coombsaint 31 August 2013

Puddletown Saint says
So is it 433 with Adam and Oz playing off Rickie or will JWP pull out right
