However, the home side soon settled and were in front just after the 15-minute mark when Darren Bent coolly converted Pajtim Kasami's cross.

Ashkan Dejagah doubled the lead shortly before the break as Norwich's defence crumbled under pressure; Alex Kacaniklic was allowed to run through and square the ball to Dejagah, who blasted the ball into the roof of the net.

There was no hint of a response from Chris Hughton's side and Steve Sidwell completed victory with a fine header in the 68th minute to set up a fourth round tie with Sheffield United.

However, Joe Lolley's effort from outside the box restored the away side's advantage and they held firm for the win to remain the lowest-ranked team left in the competition.

Fellow Conference side Macclesfield could not repeat the same at Sheffield Wednesday as the home side closed out with a 4-1 victory at Hillsborough.
