Lewis Grabban admits Norwich City took advantage of Heurelho Gomes’ tendency to come off his line during the Canaries' 3-0 victory against Watford at Carrow Road. 

The Golden Boys goalkeeper was chipped twice in Saturday’s loss. Bradley Johnson was first to loft the ball over the Brazilian before Grabban’s lob cleared the stopper via the aid of a deflection.

Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey rifled home a third goal from 20 yards to complete a comfortable win against the Hornets, who had Joel Ekstrand sent off after just two minutes.

Canaries boss Neil Adams said after Saturday’s victory that Gomes’ positioning hadn’t been studied before the game.

But Grabban told the Eastern Daily Press: “We’d done a little bit of work and Gomes likes to come out, so that was in my mind.

“He was off his line again, so I just tried to go for it. We hadn’t really worked on it in the week but it was something that was out there and something you can try to take advantage of. So we tried to do that.”
