The Canaries came from behind to see off the relegation-threatened Owls, moving them 10 points clear at the top of the Championship with 10 games remaining.

Second-half goals from Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell secured the win, responding to Jordan Rhodes’ first-half opener.

“The performance was a lot better today,” said Moore. “We have to continue to keep getting better. We changed the system around and I thought that the boys did really well.

“I said to the players that they went toe-to-toe with the league leaders today. We started the game on the front foot, and I thought we gave as good as Norwich gave in the first half.

“I thought the boys were detailed in their first-half work and we pinned them back and scored the all-important goal. We used the ball very well from the positions and worked it well through the pitch.

“Norwich put us on the back foot in the second half and kept us penned in. They had two bits of play and two excellent finishes from two top players. We could have worked up the pitch more and we failed to see that.

“They are where they are because of the players they have. We need a win to get the momentum going.”

Canaries boss Daniel Farke labelled the result his side’s “best win of the season”.

“It’s a spotlight game and it’s the type of game you want to win,” Farke said.

“It was a difficult game against a highly motivated side. They led after a few moments and they have many experienced players.

“To respond in the manner we did was amazing – it was the best win of the season.”
