Norwich   2 - 2   Burnley

Norwich 2-2 Burnley

Norwich 2-2 Burnley

Andrew Crofts scored in stoppage time before being sent off as Norwich denied Burnley their first away win of the Championship campaign.

It all looked so good for the visitors at half-time thanks to two goals from Martin Paterson - the first tucked in from six yards, the second one-on-one.

Chris Martin got the Canaries right back into it with an exquisite finish.

And Crofts popped up to complete the fightback from close range before being sent off for a second booking.

The late leveller prevented Norwich from suffering back-to-back league defeats for the first time under boss Paul Lambert, and extended Burnley's run to just two wins in 27 league games on the road.

The hosts were much the brighter in the early stages, with Simeon Jackson forcing a smart stop from Burnley keeper Lee Grant, who then made an even better save to keep out Simon Lappin's header.

But two goals in seven minutes put the Clarets firmly in charge.

A great ball from Wade Elliott found Tyrone Mears and his cross was tucked home by Paterson in the 26th minute, and the striker then calmly added his second after being played in by Dean Marney.

Norwich were much improved after the break, however, and only a fine save by Grant to keep out Leon Barnett's header maintained the visitors' two-goal lead.

City did get back into the game with 19 minutes left, when Martin produced a delightful finish after a Crofts cut-back.

Anthony McNamee was then foiled by the post and it looked like Burnley would hang on until Crofts pounced from six yards to snatch a point.
