Match Summary Hundreds of Pompey fans arrive late after a special train is held up. The start is also delayed, to mend a hole to the net! Canaries play well in the first half, – Ryder blazes over – but once Reid spins and hooks in, the minnows resolve is broken. It’s a record attendance for Carrow Road.
