Norwich entered this game on a run of eight games without a win and appeared to be drifting back towards the relegation zone, with boss Chris Hughton setting up his side to ensure they didn't suffer defeat against a similarly placed rival in Fulham who have been appalling away from home all season.

The game just never got going and it certainly wasn't helped by early head injuries to Dimitar Berbatov and Emmanuel Frimpong.

Norwich almost capitalised on Berbatov's brief absence, with Luciano Becchio stabbing goalwards after good work from Elliott Bennett on the left flank but Mark Schwarzer made a fine save.

It was the most action Schwarzer would see all afternoon as goalmouth incidents came at a real premium.

Neither side managed to build up a head of steam at any stage and the closest the Cottagers came all afternoon was a rasping 25-yard drive from Steve Sidwell at the start of the second half that forced a decent stop from Mark Bunn.
