Chris Hughton’s team was comfortably beaten on town grounds when the Canaries ran out the winners

Norwich City has shown why they are heading for an immediate return to the Premier League as they have proven too smart for Nottingham Forest

The Canaries sealed a 2-0 win at City Ground, where Daniel Farke’s team put their titles to the test with a brilliant performance that highlighted the class gap between the teams

Teemu Pukki gave the visitors an early lead when he got the ball in the area and used Tyler Blackett to go down with a shot in the bottom corner

It wasn’t long before Norwich doubled its lead when the Canaries, so sharp when playing between the lines, ended with Kieran Dowell, who previously played for Forest and was drilling from 20 meters

The main threat to Forest in the first 45 minutes came from set pieces, and Ryan Yates should have withdrawn a goal as he got up to hit Luke Freeman’s corner but planted it over the bar

That hit another response from Norwich, who could have made it three times when he sliced ​​open Forest’s defense, only Jordan Smith parried a fine to refuse Kenny Mclean

Forest began piercing Norwich’s defense early in the second half when Freeman shot a shot past the post

Lewis Grabban then swayed around the area after being picked by James Garner, which allowed Tim Krul to make a good parade

But Smith denied Pukki again after another incisive attack before Todd Cantwell missed a good opportunity after being pulled off the line by the striker

Forest kept pocketing in hopes of a breakthrough, but Norwich was never really alarmed when they comfortably watched the game

Jordan Smith: Was beaten with a terrific finish on the first goal by Teemu Pukki and defeated on the near post on the second despite a terrific goal from Kieran Dowell Made a good save to deny Kenny Mclean 5

Cyrus Christie: A really tough night for the full-back who didn’t really get a chance to attack until the second half. Fought with the crispness and quality of Norwich’s attack in the first 45 minutes

Forest kept pocketing in hopes of a breakthrough, but Norwich was never really alarmed when they comfortably watched the game

Aside from a brief hiatus early in the second half, Norwich was comfortable and you felt like they took their foot off the pedal for much of it

Garner looks like he fouled Rupp but the game continues and Grabban is free but he can’t parry his shot early enough as Krul is quick to save

Christie bombs a cross in the box.It is landed by Cafu to Freeman, who produces a couple of stepovers and has enough room for a shot that only goes far

Your midfield is so good at half the turn when they take the ball between the lines. The class gap between the sides was huge

Woods carved out and it’s two on two when Pukki Mclean thinks It was a nice move, but Smith saves a lot to keep him from going 3-0

Last time Forest scored more than two goals, Wycombe was away from Knockaert and he will be a miss

The crowd tonight is playing as Champions Cantwell finds Pukki accelerating onto the ball but boring it into the side net. Good job that was on his weaker foot

Blackett delivers a cross into the area and Ben Gibson heads it over the bar for a corner which Figueiredo heads over the bar

Norwich is so keen on her death It’s played with speed, accuracy and Cantwell has now been fouled by Christie’s free kick

Freeman’s corner comes in and Yates, unmarked, goes far if he should at least hit the target, one-off opportunity

Cafu spreads a nice ball to the left for Freeman to chase, and he wins a corner ahead of Max Aarons

Kieran Dowell pounds a shot past Smith from outside the box. Forest must try to look Norwich in the face Was way too easy

Forest still has to put a glove on Norwich after 12 minutes. Very easy for visitors so far

Visitors started very strong and are up front. Pukki gets the ball in the area, shoots, Blackett goes down and the striker takes advantage of shooting in the lower corner. McKenna has spoken to Blackett about his defense / p>
