Leeds United went down to a 2-1 defeat at Norwich City in their final away game of the season.

Leeds let a 1-0 lead slip as the Canaries fought back to claim the three points and climb above Leeds into the top half of the table.

Kalvin Phillips had given Leeds the lead but it was to be Norwich midfielder Wes Hoolahan’s day.

Hoolahan was the Norwich hero on his final appearance at Carrow Road after ten-years with the club. Hoolahan drew Norwich level before setting up Josh Murphy for the winner.

A dour game sprang to life on 39 minutes when Phillips latched onto a mishit shot from Ronaldo Vieira to fire home from 20-yards.

Leeds lead was short-lived and Norwich were level in the final minute of the first half. Hoolahan’s shot from the edge of the area looped over Bailey Peacock-Farrell in the Leeds goal after being deflected off Pontus Jansson and it eventually went in after hitting both posts.

Norwich won the game on 69 minutes when Hoolahan found Murphy and the striker had time and space to smash the ball past Peacock-Farrell.
