Jonny Howson scored the only goal of the game with a right-footed shot from ten yards out in the 38th minute.

The win sends Alex Neil's men up to 2nd in the Championship table after a 4-1 win away to Blackburn and a scoreless draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Canaries were good value for their win and have continued their unbeaten start to the season, although they may feel they should have won by a more convincing margin.

The match stats show that Norwich were comfortably on top throughout the game, as they had 57% possession along with 16 shots on goal compared to Bristol's six shots.

However, with only four of the 16 shots on target, the likes of Wes Hoolahan and Cameron Jerome will hope they can convert more chances in future matches. 

Alex Tettey and Hoolahan both hit the woodwork, while new signing Sergi Canos and Jerome both missed gilt-edged chances late on in the game. 

Canaries fans took to Twitter to give their opinion on the match and the club's current state of affairs. Supporters are understandably happy with the start to the season, although there were complaints about the performance of Steven Naismith.

There was however a lot of positivity about the influence of Canos when he came on to the field. 

Norwich make the trip to Portman Road for Sunday's noon kick-off against Ipswich Town for the much-anticipated first instalment of this year's East Anglian Derby. 

With Ipswich having drawn with Wolves tonight and lying in 12th place, the Canaries will be confident of continuing their winning ways.
