Wes Hoolahan produced a wonder goal as Norwich continued their revival in the Championship promotion race with a 5-1 win against Nottingham Forest.

Ireland midfielder Hoolahan will celebrate his 35th birthday later this year, but the midfield maestro still have plenty of brilliance left in his well-worn boots and he confirmed as much on Saturday.

After Norwich established an early lead, Hoolahan lined up his scorcher of a strike to notch his third Championship goal of the season.

“I thought we were great,” declared Norwich boss Alex Neil. “We scored five but we could have scored a lot more. We had some unbelievable goals.

“The goal from Wes was fantastic, but we know what he can do. His all-round performance was fantastic as well.”

Hoolahan’s wonder goal was not the only glorious strike in Norwich’s win, with Jonny Howson also serving up this cracker.
