Norwich City went five points clear of second placed Leeds United and crucially, seven points clear of third placed Sheffield United, with a 1-0 battling win away at Middlesbrough.

Plenty Of City fans and pundits alike are saying that the Canaries now have one foot in the Premier League and with just seven games to go, it’s hard to argue with that.

It’s definitely firmly within our own hands now.

With both our automatic promotion rivals playing at home, it seemed likely that both Leeds and the Blades would keep their promotion bandwagons rolling against Millwall and Bristol City respectively, however Leeds were given an almighty scare by Millwall and the Blades lost a wheel from their wagon as they finally lost a game.

It’s very much been a case of who blinks first in the Championship promotion race and the Canaries are steely in their determination to get over the line.

A Norwich City player finally scored a penalty as Ben Marshall scored from the spot to put Millwall 2-1 up at Elland Road. The winger is on-loan with the Lions and had the Canary nation excited for an away win until Leeds managed a late come back.

At Bramall Lane, Bristol City gave the Blades an almighty shock as they ran out 3-2 winners, blunting their challenge.

So what’s next?

Well, I said with twelve games to go that we needed to win eight of those to earn automatic promotion. We’ve won five games in a row since I said that and with two home games against QPR and Reading up next, followed by a trip to Wigan, it’s entirely possible that it could be done, or at least my target could be, very soon.

Here’s a round up of some of the reaction to the day on Twitter…
