Norwich City have been the surprise package of the Championship this season. Entering the campaign few predicted any sort of promotion push from The Canaries, but 33 games in they sit atop the division.
Their attacking brand of play has won plenty of plaudits, and they showed why this afternoon. Norwich would hand out a 4-0 drubbing away at Bolton Wanderers, scoring one of the best teams goals of the season in the process.
Take a look at this for a perfect executed counterattack, with Pukki taking the chance extremely well:

We count six passes before the goal, most of which were one or two touch. The way the defenders played the ball out from the back despite the obvious pressure from the opposition indicate a team that plays with little fear, and they certainly got their reward on this occasion.
With Leeds suffering a dip in form over the past few weeks, Norwich are now perhaps the favourites to win the division. They have scored more goals than any other side in the Championship, with Teemu Pukki nothing 22 so far in the campaign. They have leaked goals at the back at times, however, and will need to tighten up in defence over the remaining 13 games.
With Norwich, Sheffield United and Leeds only separated by two points, we are set for a stellar end to the season.
