23 - Howson out right to Pinto. Inside to Hoolahan, who sprays left to Brady.
23 - He plays inside to Tettey, who lashes a left-footed strike at goal - which cannons off the post! Great strike but no luck for City...
23 - Jerome then unfortunate not to get a corner. Goal-kick to Bristol.
24 - Tomlin shows a good touch in the box to escape his marker but blazes miles over having created space.
25 - Magnificent stuff from Klose. Long ball sent over the top, and he calmly volleys away running backwards.
26 - City win it in midfield and look to come forward. Hoolahan spreads left to Brady, who disguises a pass so well nobody reads it...
27 - Klose in on halfway to win his side a throw.
27 - Naismith released into the box by some great one-touch football. He's hounded out of it though. Norwich at top on present.
28 - Brady moves it to Murphy on the left. He crosses but O'Donnell claims with ease.
29 - Harsh handball then given against Murphy. Bristol free-kick just shy of halfway.
30 - Murphy fouled inside his own half now. City free-kick.
30 - Brady penalised for bringing down Kodjia. Scrappy period of the game at the moment.
31 - Jerome fouled by Little 25 yards from goal, on the left flank. City free-kick.
32 - Hoolahan to send in...
32 - Too long and out for a goal-kick.
33 - Howson left to Brady, who moves inside but can't find the pass he wanted.
33 - Murphy shoots from distance. Comfortable for O'Donnell. Pinto was in acres of space to his right.
35 - Murphy spins his man on the right.. Crosses. Headed away but he wins it back before committing a foul by the corner-flag.
36 - More promising stuff from City but a breakdown in communication stalls their progress. Bristol counter down the left before McGovern claims a cross and sets the Canaries going again.
37 - Pinto crosses. Headed away. Tettey picks up just inside the away side's half. City move it left to Brady, then inside and to the right.
38 - Howson flicks left to Brady on the overlap. Cross blocked. Brady again.
38 - Typically fine finish from Jonny Howson. A flowing City moving found him in space inside the box, and he confidently placed into the net!
40 - City lead. They deserve it to, been on top for a while.
41 - Four minutes until the interval. City in front and good value for it, but Bristol on the front foot.
41 - Play stopped for a head injury with Bristol's Bryan down after clashing with Pinto - who stayed with his opponent to make sure he was ok.
42 - Murphy tries to beat the last man. Can't quite do it but he does win a corner.
43 - Hoolahan across to take.
43 - Naismith fires at goal having been found by a short pass. Blocked behind for another corner.
43 - Bennett loops a volley towards goal but onto the roof of the net.
45 - Closing stage of this first half. Little carries forward for the away side but finds himself forced back. Klose then up well to meet a high ball and head away.
45 - Naismith and Jerome exchange passes before the latter tries his luck. O'Donnell able to hold onto his firm shot.
45 - Three minutes to be added.
45 - City with a throw now. Easing their way towards the interval.
