The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s win at home to Wolves.

Sunday Mirror: “The Norwich skipper’s penalty just before the break provided another body blow for Terry Connor as he fights for survival in the post-Mick McCarthy era.”

The Mail on Sunday: “When Mick McCarthy was sacked, five games ago, Wolves were two goals short of being outside the bottom three. After a fourth successive defeat they are rock bottom.”

The Observer: “Even after Holt was sent off with five minutes remaining, Wolves never really looked like a team who believed the game would be rescued.”

The Sunday Times: “Paul Lambert felt sufficiently confident to go with three at the back and the change in formation initially appeared ill-advised, Kightly and Jarvis looking dangerous on the wings.”

The People: “Holt took his season’s tally to an impressive 14 goals, making him the second highest-scoring Englishman behind Wayne Rooney in the top flight.”
