Norwich City extended their winning run to six games as they overcame relegation-threatened Rotherham United 2-1 on Saturday. Strikes from Kenny McLean and Ben Godfrey either side of an equaliser from Semi Ajayi were enough to see the Canaries through in South Yorkshire.
McLean timed a run from deep well to nip in ahead of Millers keeper Marek Rodak to put Norwich in the lead on 45 minutes. But a long-range strike from Ajayi – his sixth in five games – gave the hosts hope of an unlikely draw in their battle against relegation.
Five minutes later, however, the Canaries found the winner through defender Ben Godfrey. He found space at the back post to nod home to cap off a week in which he received a call up to the England under-20 squad.
The result sees Norwich go four points clear at the top of the Championship after the drama between Leeds and Sheffield United earlier that day. Rotherham, meanwhile, remain in the relegation zone a point from safety.
