Huddersfield Town was beaten 7-0 by Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship

Teemu Pukki (3), Emi Buendia, Todd Cantwell, Kieran Dowell and Jordan Hugill were on the scoresheet for the hosts on a tough night for Town at Carrow Road

Carlos Corberán made five changes to the squad facing Brentford three days earlier Richard Stearman, Juninho Bacuna and Isaac Mbenza all entered the starting XI alongside Danny Ward making his 100th start for the club

Joel Pereira also started in goal after a late change in roster, with loaned Manchester United goalkeeper replacing Ryan Schofield who missed the disease despite being named in the original XI

It was the Sky Bet Championship leaders who started on the front foot at home and after seeing their first attempt of the game denied by a last minute sliding block from Richard Keogh, they found a way to open the score after six hours minutes

Todd Cantwell made his way down the left side of the penalty area before stealing the ball for Teemu Pukki who deflected a low cross into the net to put Norwich 1-0

The hosts, who held the majority of the ball early on, continued to push Town deep into the pitch and got their second result in 20 minutes

Emi Buendia found Canaries ‘first goalscorer Pukki behind the Terriers’ defense with the forward forward before finding the net for the second time

The Norfolk club secured a third just after half-time midpoint as Buendia went from playmaker to scorer, seeing his low strike from a central area 25 yards outside the post

Shortly before the half hour, Buendia was involved again, kicking off Todd Cantwell who picked the top corner of the edge of the penalty area to bring the score to 4-0

In the minutes leading up to the break, the table winners again threatened Town’s goal Buendia saw his last hitting cannon retreat from the crossbar after rolling the ball on its way from a free kick before Pukki, looking for a hat trick, gets blocked by Keogh

Just before halftime the hosts got their fifth Buendia combined quickly with Kieran Dowell with the first squared for the last who found the net from the edge of the six-yard box

After the break there was a change of form with several modifications One of them was Sorba Thomas who was introduced and forced a save from Tim Krul with his first action of the game

Substitute Scott High also tried his luck with one of his first touches, shooting after a corner hit him on the edge of the box

The game’s next goal came at the other end, as the Canaries secured their sixth Isaac Mbenza knocked down Oliver Skipp in the zone with Pukki stepping up to convert and complete his hat trick

Town almost scored a goal with just over 15 minutes to go Demeaco Duhaney rose high to meet a left corner but saw his gaze header return from the base of the post

The final goal of the match went to Norwich, however, when Max Aarons appeared on the left and rolled the ball in the path of substitute Jordan Hugill who finished close to complete the scoring on a difficult night for Town in the south-east
