Norwich   1 - 2   Crystal Palace

Norwich 1-2 Crystal Palace

Norwich 1-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace staged a fine comeback to earn a first away league win of the season, beating Norwich at Carrow Road.

The hosts started brightly, Simeon Jackson hitting the bar before Simon Lappin crossed for Grant Holt to open the scoring from close range.

But Palace looked a team transformed after the break, Julian Bennett heading in from six yards to equalise.

And the turnaround was complete when Anthony Gardner nodded in Owen Garvan's corner at the near post.

The Canaries came out flying and almost took the lead when Wes Hoolahan played in Jackson, who saw his effort cannon back off the woodwork.

Jackson almost got in again after a poor backpass but Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni was quick off his line to clear, and the visitors then had a chance of their own when Garvan flashed a shot just wide following an Edgar Davids' cross.

Palace continued to look dangerous on the counter attack and Wilfred Zaha drove an effort wide before being denied by a superb last-ditch tackle from Andrew Crofts.

But Norwich were on top and after Davids hacked off the line from Lappin's shot, Hoolahan played the ball wide to Lappin and he crossed for Holt to put the hosts in front.

Crystal Palace boss George Burley brought Kieran Djalili on for Davids soon after the break and the visitors immediately looked a more dangerous attacking threat.

And when Zaha played a short corner to Garvan and his cross found Bennett, the Eagles were level - with their first away goal of the season.

Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy made a good save from Andrew Dorman to keep the scores level but Palace were not to be denied when Garvan played a corner into the near post and Gardner got in front of his marker to head home.

The hosts attempted to salvage a point and Anthony McNamee flashed a shot just over the bar, but Palace held on for a vital win.
