Swindon   1 - 1   Norwich

Swindon 1-1 Norwich

Swindon 1-1 Norwich

Gordon Greer's late equaliser robbed Norwich of three points after Grant Holt's header put the Canaries ahead.

Norwich broke the deadlock in the 51st minute when Holt headed a Mike Rose cross powerfully home from close range.

The away side had the better of the exchanges and Chris Martin went close to increasing the lead when his 30-yard free-kick clipped the crossbar.

But, in injury time, Greer headed home from a corner, to save a point for play-off contenders Swindon.


Norwich manager Paul Lambert told BBC Radio Norfolk:

"I thought we'd done enough but you're never quite sure. It's a decent point but we should have won the game.

"It keeps it going, unbeaten again, coming to a place where they're really flying.

"You can be critical of people dropping people in the box, but in general terms we've been brilliant."
