Norwich   2 - 1   Millwall

Highlights - Norwich 2-1 Millwall

Norwich 2-1 Millwall

An injury-time goal from on-loan midfielder Henri Lansbury saw Norwich take all three points against Millwall at Carrow Road.

Theo Robinson put the visitors ahead in the second half with a goal into the bottom right corner from close range.

Elliot Ward levelled with a goal from inside the area after a Lansbury free-kick came back off the post.

And Arsenal loanee Lansbury popped up with a late winner when he slotted Grant Holt's pass into the net.

Norwich started off the brighter as Russell Martin linked up well with Andrew Crofts but when the Welshman found Simon Lappin in the box, he was unable to keep his volley down.

Steve Morison had a chance for the visitors but his volley from distance just flew over John Ruddy's crossbar.

Striker Simeon Jackson then skipped past the Millwall defence before shooting low at David Forde, but the goalkeeper was equal to the striker's effort.

Millwall had to make a substitution after 15 minutes with top scorer Morison limping off and his replacement Robinson almost made an instant impact, but Ruddy did well to tip his volley over the crossbar.

The Lions had a great chance to open the scoring on the half-hour when James Henry's corner found Darren Purse at the back post but the experienced defender fired over.

The second half started controversially as Jackson went down in the area looking for a penalty but instead of pointing to the spot, the referee booked the player for simulation.

Millwall responded and took the lead on 57 minutes as former Norwich loanee Henry broke quickly before delivering a ball towards Robinson, who placed the ball past Ruddy from six yards.

Norwich went in search of an equaliser and Holt had a chance but could not direct his volley on goal from a Lansbury cross.

Millwall could have snatched a second but Henry's shot was blocked by Marc Tierney.

Instead, the home side finally levelled on 77 minutes when Lansbury's 25-yard free-kick came back off the post and Ward was on hand at the far post to smash the ball home.

And with the last kick of the game, the ball fell into the path of Lansbury who prodded home to give the Canaries a vital three points.
