Flying high: The Norwich ace who helped dismantle Sheffield Wednesday

Published

on

Norwich City’s sensational run of form continued at the weekend with a phenomenal 4-0 victory away at Sheffield Wednesday.

Daniel Farke’s men went into the contest at Hillsborough on the back of three straight victories and losing just one of their last ten league games.

After missing a penalty in what was a drab first-half, the Canaries netted four goals in 29 minutes thanks to strikes from Emi Buendia and Dennis Srbeny, as well as a brace from Teemu Pukki.

The latter is the player who will feature in our FLW Spotlight today, after taking his tally up to eight goals for the season…

Pukki is quickly proving himself to be one of the signings of the season in the Championship – the 28-year old arrived at Carrow Road on a free transfer in the summer and is their leading goalscorer with eight goals in sixteen games.

After replacing the unavailable Jordan Rhodes in the Canaries XI, the Finnish international soon increased his impressive tally for the season, netting 2 goals in 4 shots throughout the 90 minutes.

It’s more than goals that Pukki offers though, the attacker accrued a pass success rate of 71% from 14 passes, one of those being a cross that nearly led to yet another Norwich goal.

The Canaries now sit second in the Championship after their magnificent win at Hillsborough, and if Pukki stays fit all season, they won’t be far off that position come the end of the campaign.
