71 - GOAL - Norwich 3 Bury 1 - Anton Forrester heads home from close range after a scramble in the box.
64 - Anton Forrester skies Bury's best chance of the night, running on to Jones's pull-back unmarked but firing over from eight yards out.
57 - Bunn palms away a storming Shaun Beeley shot.
58 - Lainton gathers a Johnson shot from distance.
As if Bury's night needed to get any worse, fighting has broken out between visiting fans and stewards as they bid to eject someone. It seems to have calmed for now.
51 - GOAL - NORWICH 3 Bury 0 - Former Bolton Wanderers striker Johan Elmander bags a goal on his Norwich debut, showing great fleet of foot to knock the ball past the last Bury defender before firing it past Lainton.
48 - Snodgrass almost makes it three for the Canaries, dragging a shot across goal.
46 - Bunn just manages to tip over a Craig Jones deflection as Bury force a corner, which Jackson sidefoots over. Great start.
Bury get the second half under way...
Norwich 2 Bury 0
42 - Pilkington sticks out a boot but pokes Olsson's knee-high cross just over.
You could see the spray off Andy Procter's head as he took another one for the team defending a corner. He may need a bigger bandage!
37 - Great play by Danny Mayor to put Craig Jones in for Bury's first shot on target. Mark Bunn did well to stop his nearpost shot and gather the rebound.
35 - Norwich let another chance slip by - Bradley Johnson failing to get his foot round a Bassong knockdown.
Norwich have just missed tweo more decent chances - a Bassong header and Snodgrass shot just goin wide.
30 - GOAL - NORWICH 2 Bury 0 - Anthony Pilkington plants a left footed strike across goal and into the bottom corner. He was played in behind by a neat little Wes Hoolahan flick. Norwich are cutting through Bury like butter here.
Forrester did well to hold the ball up then and bring Jones into the play, but the winger turned on to his left and crossed to empty space on the back post.
The game is passing Danny Mayor by in the middle of an attacking midfield three. Norwich are playing little balls round the corner and completely bypassing the Bury midfielders.
While Olsson was looking dangerous running behind the Bury defence it was actually a dinked little ball inside that created his goal. The Swedish defender still had plenty to do though, receiving the ball with his back to goal before turning sharply and hitting it through a crowd of players in one fluid motion. Lainton was rooted to the spot as the ball flew past him.
23 - GOAL - NORWICH 1 Bury 0 - Martin Olsson turns on a six-pence on the edge of the box and drills a low left-footed shot past the unsighted Rob Lainton.
19 - Hearts in mouths as Jones slides in on Olsson in the Bury box, but the Swedish left-back is offside - and Jones won the ball cleanly anyway. Olsson is looking dangerous when he overlaps though.
18 – Russell Martin gets the first shot on goal, but it clears the bar by some distance.
16 - YELLOW - Procter for tackle on Hoolahan.
First 15 minutes have passed without any major scares in the Bury box, but the home side have enjoyed the majority of possession.
Elmander is getting roundly booed by the Bury fans, with plenty of reference to his Bolton Wanderers days.
5 - Robert Snodgrass's set-piece is blocked and Jackson leads the counter but he loses control of the ball and it is cleared.
4 - Snodgrass draws a foul from Roberts 30 yards out
1 - William Edjenguele intercepts a Bradley Johnson cross from the left for a corner, which is cleared.
Norwich get the game started...
Both teams are out now, with Bury's end looking full to capacity. Good effort Shakers fans...
Bury team news
Kevin Blackwell has made just one change from the team who drew 2-2 at Burton Albion on Saturday.
In a bold move, Marlon Jackson, who scored as a sub against Accrington in Bury's last home game, is brought in to partner two-in-two Blackburn loan striker Anton Forrester up front.
If Blackwell persists with the 4-5-1 at Burton then Jackson could start on the wide left or right, with either Craig Jones or Danny Mayor coming inside.
But it looks like a straight 4-4-2.

Good evening from Carrow Road, where Bury take on Norwich in the second round of the Capital One Cup.
The 1,000-plus Shakers fans who have made the trip down on 15 coaches courtesy of new chairman Stewart Day are yet to filter into the stadium, but the atmosphere here in sunny Norfolk is building up nicely.
Lets hope they all get home safely and have plenty to cheer about on the long journey home.
If Kevin Blackwell's newly assembled side do manage to upset the odds and make it through tonight it will be the club's first venture as far as the third round since the 2002/03 season.
They were eventually beaten by Fulham in the third round that year, but not before taking the scalp of Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok.
Let's hope they manage to repeat the feat and see off another Premier League side...
Just waiting for the team news, which I will bring to you as soon as it is out.
