Goal in 90th minute enough to beat AFC Bournemouth and put Canaries four points clear of the third-placed Cherries

Todd Cantwell (pictured above) struck in 90th minute to give Norwich City a 1-0 win over AFC Bournemouth at Carrow Road that put them level on points with Group C leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers.

After Norwich goalkeeper Aston Oxborough made two fine saves and Cherries goalkeeper Mark Travers denied Louis McIntosh and Tristan Abrahams, Cantwell ran at the Cherries defence and found the net from outside the penalty area to clinch victory. 

The result leaves the Canaries four points clear of third-placed AFC Bournemouth, who have a match in hand. Bury are bottom without any points.
