, Norwich’s first goalkeeper was self-isolating after that it was revealed the Dutch keeper was tested positive for Covid. Barden who replaced him made some eyecatching saves to keep his side ahead. It was the second start for the young Welshman for the first team.

Farke said: “Daniel made some really good saves in the second half and that will only be good for his confidence and will improve his standing in the group.

“The only way you can prove yourself is to play well in a proper game and he has done that. It is no surprise because we have all seen his potential in training.

“He is a confident young lad and it has helped him working with Tim Krul and Michael McGovern on a regular basis in training.

“He is also fortunate we have an excellent goalkeeping coach here in Ed Wootten, who has done a great job with him.”
