Adam Idah's double at Plymouth Argyle won't live long in the memory, but it could be the boost Norwich City need in their striking department.

That's the verdict of Canaries head coach David Wagner, who talked up the value of the Irishman's goals after a 6-2 loss at Home Park.

Idah's late double was his first in league football and took him to four goals this season - his highest tally of any campaign in his career.

Wagner believes that could give the 22-year-old the confidence he needs, as City attempt to navigate life without injured duo Josh Sargent and Ashley Barnes.

"I'm happy for Adam that he scored two goals, that he took the penalty and scored as well," the German said. "It's good for him, it's good for us to have strikers who can score goals.

"But unfortunately he will not get the headlines after this performance, after the team performance.

"But for sure, this will continue to raise his confidence, and this will help him to make further steps.

"I said this before today's game, and he made some good steps in the last weeks and months. We will work with him so that this continues. Hopefully he will score some further goals."
