Middlesbrough   1 - 1   Norwich

Highlights - Middlesbrough 1-1 Norwich

Middlesbrough 1-1 Norwich

Norwich could not make it four wins in a row but a point at Middlesbrough was enough to put them second in the table.

Grant Holt fired Norwich ahead in the 12th minute from a tight angle for his sixth goal in six games.

But Boro levelled in the 21st minute when Julio Arca's pass deflected off City defender Leon Barnett past wrong-footed keeper John Ruddy.

David Wheater volleyed in for Boro late on but the goal was disallowed for pushing, and Justin Hoyte hit the post.

The Canaries, playing with three changes from the side who beat league leaders QPR on Saturday, started brightly.

Aaron Wilbraham - playing his second game for the Norfolk side - flicked the ball on perfectly for Norwich captain Holt to open the scoring.

The visitors continued to press with Holt and Owain Tudur Jones having chances in the first half.

But Martin's own goal brought Boro to life and the home side should have taken the lead when Joe Bennett shot just wide.

After the break, Norwich regained the initiative and Wilbraham and substitute Chris Martin were unlucky not to get on the score sheets.

But the Teessiders looked most likely towards the end with Ruddy saving brilliantly from Barry Robson and Kris Boyd and Hoyte also going close.
