Review:
Despite this only being a friendly, 18,000 people crammed into Carrow Road to see Forest (the FA Cup Holders) take on the third-division Canaries who herocially made it to last year's semi-final.The report in the following day's Daily Herald had us all at sea and only a goal down by half-time. We went two-down before a John Rowland goal and a comeback with four minutes to go was halted by a third Norwich goal a minute later.
