Borja Sainz's late goal gave Norwich City victory over 10-man Coventry City at Carrow Road and boosted their push for the Championship play-offs.

The Spaniard exchanged passes with Ashley Barnes and then beautifully curled his shot into the net.

It lifted Norwich to eighth in the table, and a point outside the play-offs, a place below the Sky Blues, who dropped out of the top six.

After a goalless first half, the in-form O'Hare opened the scoring in superb fashion, weaving his way into the penalty area and evading a couple of challenges before slotting past keeper Angus Gunn.

Norwich hit back on the hour mark. Barnes was teed up by Gabriel Sara and after the striker's shot was blocked, USA striker Sargent was on hand to fire home.

Kitching was red-carded on 71 minutes for bringing down Sargent, who would have been through on goal.

Coventry remained a threat, however, and Gunn produced a brilliant save to deny Kasey Palmer and keep the Canaries on level terms.

It proved to be a vital stop as David Wagner's side went on to take all three points and continue their steady climb up the table.

Their home form has been a key factor in their change of fortunes - they are now unbeaten in their past seven matches at Carrow Road.

"The result was great and the performance in the first half I think was top class - brave and on the front foot.

"The players closed every inch of the pitch down and played some good football as well.

"Then unfortunately we conceded a very avoidable goal. Then the way they came back and to win it in this manner is just fantastic. Overall it was a top afternoon for us.

"I was very pleased with all the players. We were energetic and front-footed like we wanted to be, because if you give Coventry the ball you have to avoid them enjoying themselves.

"We always said that when we get players back we will have competitiveness in our squad. We always have belief."

"I'm fuming. You get a sending-off and it can cost you. The referee couldn't wait to get the card out of his pocket.

"We go down to 10 men and then have the best chances of the game and there were some really good bits of football played when we were down to 10 men as well as when we were full-strength.

"I'm gutted for the players, because we put a lot of work into the game for no points out of it. We're hurting a little bit.

"I'm really not happy with the way things have panned out today, because we didn't deserve the defeat, that's for sure. I think Norwich have been really lucky."
