Four in a row for Norwich as they beat Sunderland
Norwich survived a second-half onslaught from Sunderland to secure their fourth straight home Barclays Premier League win as a 2-1 victory condemned the Black Cats to yet another defeat.
A second goal in eight days from former Newcastle defender Sebastien Bassong and a smart finish from Anthony Pilkington gave the home side a well-deserved two-goal lead.
But Craig Gardner pulled one back just before the break for Sunderland, who then wasted numerous chances in a second half they dominated without managing to secure a much-needed result. The win moves the Canaries up to 12th in the table, with Sunderland still only one place and one point above the relegation zone.
