Alex Neil


Alex Neil guided Norwich City to promotion from the Championship in 2015

Norwich City were held to a goalless draw by Sheffield Wednesday in their first home match of the season.

Alex Neil’s side, who began life back in the Championship with a 4-1 win at Blackburn, almost led before the break when Sam Hutchinson struck his own bar.

But the Owls edged the second period, with Gary Hooper well denied by substitute goalkeeper Michael McGovern.

Wednesday were without striker Fernando Forestieri, who refused to play amidst recent transfer speculation.
