Norwich City striker Gary Hooper scored a hat-trick as the Canaries beat Blackpool 4-0 at Carrow Road.

Nathan Redmond scored City's fourth goal.

Hooper had been in and out of the side and manager Alex Neil was happy with his contribution, after the game he said:

"I should imagine Gary Hooper was disappointed he wasn't playing last week and all credit to him for his response.

"He worked really hard today."

The Canaries moved up to seventh in the Championship table that day. The season ended in glory as Alex Neil led the team to victory in the play-off final at Wembley.
