Leicester 2-3 Norwich

Norwich moved third in the Championship and extended their unbeaten run to six games with a win at Leicester.

Wes Hoolahan nodded in Andrew Surman's corner to put Norwich ahead before Richie Wellens headed in an equaliser.

Grant Holt then scored from the penalty spot after Hoolahan was brought down by Matt Oakley before Aaron Wilbraham cut inside the area and slotted in a third.

Substitute Paul Gallagher curled in a 20-yard free-kick deep into stoppage time for the Foxes.

Leicester, without a win in three matches, had the first chance when Souleymane Bamba headed Oakley's corner wide.

Yakubu then headed over from 12 yards before strike partner Darius Vassell forced a save from Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy.

Vassell also fired into the side netting in the second half while Bamba shot straight at Ruddy.

Norwich's Andrew Crofts powered a header over from Surman's delivery while Wilbraham failed to hit the target with a similar effort from Marc Tierney's cross.

Leicester goalkeeper Ricardo was also called into action to stop another Wilbraham effort late on.
