The Canaries had been hammered 7-1 by Colchester on Saturday but despite a nervy start, they smashed in four unanswered goals after the break, with Holt opening his account for the club with a treble.

Scott Murray cleared off the line from Michael Spillane after 36 minutes but then blotted his copybook by conceding a 55th-minute penalty by bringing down Adam Drury and Wes Hoolahan netted from the spot.

Holt doubled the lead in the 64th minute when he headed in a Simon Whaley cross at the far post, before following up to make it 3-0 after Tom Adeyemi's shot had been saved.

And the summer signing from Shrewsbury completed the scoring in stoppage-time when he fired in off a post from distance.
