Anthony Pilkington scores twice as Paul Lambert's Norwich City claim all three points against Norwich City.

Norwich City midfielder Anthony Pilkington went some way to banishing the memories of his costly miss at Old Trafford last time out by finding the net on two occasions as Swansea City visited Carrow Road this afternoon.

The 23-year-old opened the scoring with just 47 seconds of the clock, turning in a pass from Steve Morison from just inside the penalty area.

One became two in the ninth minute courtesy of Russell Martin. The defender beat his marker to head his first ever Premier League goal from David Fox's cross.

However, just when Paul Lambert's men looked to be heading for a comfortable victory, Swansea striker Danny Graham halved the deficit in the 12th minute when he converted Scott Sinclair's cross.

Both sides created chances, but it wasn't until the 63rd minute that the fourth goal of the game went the way of the hosting Canaries.

Pilkington acquired possession from Bradley Johnson before curling the ball into the bottom corner of the net from 12 yards out.
