Norwich 2-1 Southampton
Norwich striker Jamie Cureton struck a brace to help his side come back from a goal down to beat Southampton.

Kenwyne Jones had put the visitors ahead when he slotted in a loose ball after keeper David Marshall could only parry Youssef Safri corner.

But Norwich equalised against the run of play when Mark Fotheringham coolly laid the ball off to Cureton, who drilled a shot into the top corner.

The winner came when Cureton calmly controlled a cross before firing in.

  • Norwich manager Peter Grant:
    "Strikers like Jamie Cureton have an instinct about them when it comes to putting the ball in the net, and it's something you just can't teach.

    "Jamie scored two excellent goals for us today and he's done that sort of thing all his career.

    "He's a real fox in the box and I'm very pleased for him and hopefully he'll get a lot more for us this year."

  • Southampton boss George Burley:
    "I've looked at our disallowed goal on the monitor and I'm convinced it crossed the line.

    "I certainly wouldn't object if goal-line technology was used to sort out things like this.

    "We should have been 2-0 up but within a few minutes Norwich got back in it. It's very hard to take."
