The Canaries are investigating the claims by a  small number of their supporters, who were housed in the Steve Bull Stand for Wolves’ 1-0 win at Molineux yesterday.

Police said they were aware of the allegations but had not received any official complaints.

Norwich confirmed that any supporter found guilty of racist behaviour would be banned for life.

Inspector Howard Lewis-Jones, from West Midlands Police, said: “We have not received any official complaints in relation to the match yesterday however we are aware of these allegations and that officials at Wolves and Norwich are investigating.

“I would encourage anyone who has witnessed abusive behaviour to report it as soon as possible so we can act on it.

“Racism on the terraces will not be tolerated and we take every report extremely seriously.”

David Edwards scored the only goal of the game as Wolves made a winning start to their Championship campaign.
