Ghana's No. 1

Norwich close gap to top six with Stoke draw

Published on: 18 March 2023

Angus Gunn has kept five Championship clean sheets this season

Goalkeeper Angus Gunn was instrumental in helping Norwich City close the gap to the play-off places to three points after a goalless draw at Stoke City.

After Josh Sargent wasted an early chance for Norwich, Gunn made three excellent saves in quick succession to frustrate Stoke in the first half.

He first denied Will Smallbone from close-range, before twice stopping Jacob Brown from putting the Potters ahead.

After the break, the inspired Gunn foiled Brown twice more and tipped a Tyrese Campbell effort over the bar to help the Canaries edge closer to sixth-placed Millwall, after they were beaten by Huddersfield.

In a game largely dominated by Stoke, Ben Pearson also lashed an effort into the side-netting on a frustrating afternoon which saw the hosts move up a place to 13th.
