As you may have been aware, Norwich City took on Tottenham Hotspur in a friendly match on Friday as both teams look to get back to match fitness ahead of the Premier League re-start next week.

The friendly was not confirmed by either club but various media reports confirmed the game was being played.

Whilst there has been no official confirmation of the score line or even the format of the game, football.london journalist, Alistair Gold seems to have the inside track.

According to Mr Gold, the game was set up as a training exercise with four 30 minute quarters being played and despite going a goal down, Norwich eventually ended up the victors 2-1.

The game was played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London as both teams look to adapt to playing football in large empty stadia without fans and the noise, presence and colour that they bring.

Both teams used a mixture of first team and academy players in a format that teams often use in pre-season to improve fitness. Hopefully there will be something from the clubs to provide a little more detail in the coming hours.

UPDATE

Having just published this article, the club have confirmed the result in a short statement which you can read at canaries.co.uk.

Having gone a goal down, Josip Drmic converted a Josh Martin cross before Mario Vrancic scored a late winner via a trademark free kick.
