Sheff Weds 2-2 Norwich
Second-half goals from Carl Robinson and Alan Quinn saw Sheffield Wednesday earn a crucial point against Norwich.

Trailing 2-0 at the break and with relegation rivals Brighton cruising to victory against Wolves, boss Chris Turner worked wonders at the half-time interval to inspire a thrilling Wednesday fightback.

Turner's side were rocked back on their heels in the 18th minute when the Canaries' on-loan Preston striker David Healy scored his first goal for Norwich against the run of play.

Iwan Roberts headed home the second following a prolonged spell of Norwich pressure to send the crestfallen Owls in two-down at the break.

Following a cagey start by two sides low on confidence it took 15 minutes before the Owls forced Robert Green into the first save, the City keeper holding Allan Johnston's cross.

But although Robinson forced Green into action again with a cross-cum-shot that was well held, it was the Canaries who broke the deadlock.

With their first real passing move of the match Norwich swept forward to deliver Turner's struggling side a psychological blow, Healy sweeping home left-footed from the edge of the box.

Wednesday's heads went down following the opening goal and Norwich went on to dominate and it wasn't long before they added a second.

Gary Holt and Healy combined in a sweeping move that saw the latter's pin-point cross headed home at the far post by Roberts two minutes before the break.

Robinson gave Wednesday hope in the 66th minute after a cross by Johnston saw him beat Green with a header.

Quinn then fired home his third goal of the season from 20 yards to get the Owls on level terms.

Late substitute Lloyd Owusu pulled his shot wide from the edge of the area and Johnston fired over the bar as the home side looked to snatch all three points.

Quinn also went close to grabbing a second when his 20-yard effort was blocked by a scrambling Norwich defence.


Sheff Wed: Pressman, Westwood, Barry-Murphy, Maddix, Monk, Powell, Robinson, Quinn, Johnston, Reddy, Kuqi. Subs: Evans, Soltvedt, Owusu, Haslam, Crane.

Norwich: Green, Kenton, Drury, Mackay, Fleming, Mulryne, Holt, Russell, McVeigh, Roberts, Healy. Subs: Crichton, Nielsen, Abbey, Nedergaard, Easton.
