It was a good night for Norwich City on Wednesday night, as they extended their lead at the top of the Championship table with a 2-0 win over Bristol City at Carrow Road.
Victory over the Robins means that the Canaries are now seven points clear at the top of the standings, albeit having playing more games than those directly behind them in the race for promotion.
A goal in either half from Jordan Hugill was enough to secure all three points for Daniel Farke’s side, who have now won four on the bounce in all competitions.
Perhaps not surprisingly, plenty of Norwich fans were delighted as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game, and one player who earned a considerable amount of praise, was Oliver Skipp.
The on-loan Tottenham midfielder produced a dominant performance in the centre of the park, with WhoScored reporting that the 20-year-old made two tackles and four interceptions, as well as playing 66 passes with an 84.9% success rate across the course of the 90 minutes.
That contribution did not go unnoticed by a number of the club’s followers, and here, we take a look at what some of those Norwich supporters had to say about Skipp’s latest performance.

IF we go up. I’d love to see Skipp join on another season loan. Surely it would be good for everyone. #ncfc

Never going to happen but if we kept skipp next season even on loan would be amazing will be a massive miss next season hope we already have a replacement ready #ncfc
