Norwich suspend two supporters after racist abuse allegations

Norwich have suspended two fans from Carrow Road as they investigate allegations of racist abuse during their defeat at Wolves.

The Canaries are looking into an incident in the away end alleged to have happened during the 1-0 Sky Bet Championship loss at Molineux on Sunday.

Should they be found guilty, the pair would face lifetime bans from Carrow Road, Norwich have stated, and the Norfolk side have handed their information to police.

A statement on official club website canaries.co.uk read: "Norwich can confirm two male supporters have been suspended from attending games at Carrow Road, pending the outcome of the club's on-going investigation into allegations of racist abuse at last Sunday's Sky Bet Championship game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

"As previously reported the club has received numerous complaints from Norwich supporters who were at the match and we would like to thank all of those who have come forward to provide detailed eye-witness accounts of the incident.

"If, as a result of our investigation, the club is satisfied any individuals are guilty of racist behaviour, we will issue them with lifetime bans from attending games at Carrow Road.

"We have passed our evidence on to police, who are also investigating the matter."

Norwich, who had Martin Olsson sent off, lost in their first competitive game since relegation from the Barclays Premier League after Dave Edwards scored a second-half winner.
