FORMER Celtic striker Teemu Pukki scored in his fifth successive game as Norwich overcame Queen’s Park Rangers 1-0 at Loftus Road.

The Finnish flop, who netted only seven times in 26 league appearances for the Hoops following his £2.2million move from Schalke in August 2013, maintained an astonishing run in which he has claimed the winners in four of his club and country’s last five games.

Earlier this month he grabbed the only goals in his nation’s UEFA Nations League triumphs over Hungary and Estonia which he followed up with the Canaries’ solitary effort in the victory over Middlesbrough last week.

He netted the opener in the Carrow Road side’s 2-1 victory over Reading in midweek and was on target in the 71st minute for the points-clincher in London.

Pukki, who joined the East Anglian outfit from Brondby in the summer, snatched his latest effort when he CHESTED in a shot from team-mate Marco Stiepermann to lift his side within two points off the top six in the Championship.
