Norwich City teenager Korey Smith fired the Canaries in to second spot in League One on Saturday as they overcame a determined Wycombe Wanderers to win 1–0.

The 18 year old, an injury doubt before the fixture, hit a 77th minute winner that lifted City above Charlton Athletic on goal difference.

It is the second time this season that Smith has scored against Wycombe in what has been a busy few weeks for the youngster who was part of a delegation of successful Football Apprentices hailed by Prime Minister Gordon Brown at a Downing Street bash prior to Christmas.

City now lie eight points behind leaders Leeds Utd who also have a game in hand on the Canaries.
