An injury-time equaliser sees Norwich City and Swansea City head in level at 1-1 in their Premier League encounter.

Half time at Carrow Road sees Swansea City and Norwich City level at 1-1 in their Premier League clash.

The away side had the first real chance of the game after six minutes through Pablo Hernandez, who fired a low shot just wide of the post.

Swansea then took the lead on 12 minutes after Nathan Dyer ran onto his own flick-on and lifted the ball over John Ruddy.

Two minutes later, Norwich had a penalty shout turned down after the ball struck Angel Rangel on the arm, although it looked as though there was nothing the defender could do about it.

Michu found himself in some space in the box on 24 minutes, but the forward skied his effort well over the bar.

Gary Hooper had a huge chance to equalise on 35 minutes, but Michel Vorm stood up well in the one-on-one and forced the striker to shoot wide.

The Canaries came close to equalising on 45 minutes, but Ashley Williams got back and cleared Leroy Fer's effort off the line.

Norwich grabbed an equaliser four minutes into injury time through Hooper, who chested the ball down and smashed a volley past Vorm.
