As the table looks today, Norwich City are in 1st place, with 53 points from 25 matches, while Bristol City sit in 9th, with 36 points from 25.

Norwich City scored first, following Jordan Hugill opening the scoring in the 36th minute, thereby seeing the first half to a 1-0.

Norwich City continued to apply pressure the second half and were rewarded, beginning with a new goal from Jordan Hugill, scoring his second goal, 76 minutes in, which sealed the victory for Norwich City.
