30 - City lead a game of few chances. Superb strike from Dorrans.
31 - Pritchard drives at goal. Beaten away by Maxwell. City enjoying a good spell after going in front.
34 - Pritchard shoots. Blocked. Naismith follows up but slices well off-target.
36 - Howson in the right place to intercept a cut-back into the box. Cross sent in but too deep. Out for a City throw.
38 - Likewise at the other end. Too much on a Murphy cross this time.
40 - Ruddy punches away a Robinson cross from the left. Preston start again in midfield but City win it and come forward themselves.
41 - It's 2-0 as City break at pace. Dijks plays into Jerome who lays back for Murphy to fire low into the net!
42 - The Canaries two goals to the good in Lancashire.

45 - Pritchard through and with a clear sight of a third. Denied by Maxwell. Should be 0-3.
HALF-TIME | Preston 0-2 City.
Goals from Graham Dorrans and Josh Murphy leave the Canaries, probably deservedly, in control at Deepdale.
@Tony: We've taken our chances. Scoring first has been huge all season, really.
Preston back out for the second half.
No further changes for either team it seems. Preston forced into one early in the game.
@EmsworthCanary: Been a long season ha!
46 - Back underway. City two goals to the good.
46 - Gallagher turns to shoot. Gets an effort away but is fouled in doing so. Free-kick given.
47 - Gallagher takes the set-piece. Fizzes wide.
48 - Howson prods back to Ruddy. Clears. Back to him and he picks up.
49 - Barkhuizen clipped by Dorrans. Free-kick given, 30 yards plus from goal.
