Teemu Pukki’s goal was his 50th in the Championship in 75 appearances in the second tier

Norwich City came from a goal down to beat struggling Sheffield Wednesday and go 10 points clear at the top of the Championship.

Jordan Rhodes gave Wednesday a surprise early lead from six yards at Hillsborough after Barry Bannan’s free-kick was blocked by the wall and Joey Pelupessy’s follow-up strike was not properly cleared.

Teemu Pukki blasted Norwich level from eight yards after an hour as good build-up play set up the prolific Finn to strike into the top corner.

Todd Cantwell secured an eighth successive win for the Canaries 16 minutes later as he curled in a fine effort from inside the box.

Wednesday have now lost seven successive games and remain second-from-bottom of the Championship, seven points from safety with 11 games left to play.
