Norwich   1 - 1   Doncaster

Norwich 1-1 Doncaster

Norwich 1-1 Doncaster

Doncaster left Carrow Road with an unlikely point as Adam Drury's late own goal proved costly for Norwich.

The hosts were slow out of the blocks but took a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to leading scorer Grant Holt.

Defender Drury went on a surging run down the left and found Holt lurking in the six-yard box, and the striker found the net with a first-time shot.

Drury, however, ruined his good work when he inadvertently headed John Oster's corner into his own net.

The draw will come as a welcome boost for the visitors whose confidence had suffered a blow after four straight defeats and only one win in their previous nine league matches.

Indeed, Rovers chairman John Ryan had wanted to postpone the game because of injuries to 11 first-team players.

Doncaster held their own in the first-half, with impressive new loan singing Frank Moussa having a goal-bound shot blocked by Norwich defender Elliott Ward.

But Holt gave the hosts the lead in the 31st minute when he struck high into the roof of the net for his 15th goal of the season.

Norwich settled after their opener and Holt nearly doubled the advantage only to squander a glit-edged chance from another dangerous Drury cross.

Holt and Aaron Wilbraham both had further chances before the visitors deservedly equalised in the 83rd minute.
