Half-Time Report: Robert Snodgrass goal gives Norwich City 1-0 lead

Robert Snodgrass scores an early goal in the first half to give Norwich City a 1-0 lead against Cardiff City at half time.

Norwich City are leading Cardiff City 1-0 at half time in their Premier League clash.

Cardiff almost took the lead in the first minute. Craig Noone delivered the ball from the right and Jordon Mutch tried an audacious overhead kick, but he did not get enough power on the strike to beat the goalkeeper.

Norwich came back and Jonas Gutierrez headed over, but the visitors grabbed the opening goal with just five minutes played.

Martin Olsson was slipped in down the left and played the ball across the box, where Robert Snodgrass was waiting at the back post for a simple finish.

Norwich continued their strong start with some good football, but Cardiff's Steven Caulker missed a good chance to equalise for the home side when he headed wide.

The Bluebirds were sloppy in possession, but Noone did drill a low shot just wide of the post.

The Canaries almost doubled their lead following good play by Russell Martin and Johan Elmander, but Bradley Johnson's shot was deflected over the bar.
