Nott'm Forest   1 - 1   Norwich

Nott'm Forest 1 - 1 Norwich

Nott'm Forest 1 - 1 Norwich

Nottingham Forest are still searching for their first win of the season after being held to a draw by Norwich.

The visitors twice hit the woodwork, but it was Forest who went ahead with a Dexter Blackstock penalty after Russell Martin's foul on Paul Anderson.

Andrew Crofts scooped the ball over keeper Lee Camp from 12 yards to pull the Canaries level.

Forest almost snatched a win late on, but Robert Earnshaw's 89th-minute strike hit the post.

Norwich will feel appeased by their late reprieve, if only because the woodwork twice denied Chris Martin as they dominated the early stages of the match.

Martin turned Forest defender Wes Morgan and fired a shot against the crossbar, and then saw a free-kick from just outside the area come back off the post.

Forest capitalised, Blackstock beating City goalkeeper John Ruddy after Martin had brought down Anderson.

The Canaries continued to threaten and equalised when Crofts finished from 12 yards after Forest had failed to clear their lines.

Elliott Ward headed over an Andrew Surman corner as Norwich almost took the lead and, after Earnshaw's late effort for Forest, both teams had to settle for a point.
