Half-Time Report: One goal apiece at Carrow Road

Robert Snodgrass cancels out a strike by Michu as Norwich City and Swansea go into the break level.

Both Norwich City and Swansea City claimed a goal during the opening 45 minutes of their clash at Carrow Road this afternoon.

Visiting Swansea thought they had claimed the lead as early as the fifth minute, but Michu's strike was chalked off for a foul that had been committed earlier in the move.

Moments later Norwich were forced into an early change when goalkeeper Mark Bunn picked up a hamstring injury and had to be replaced between the posts by Lee Camp.

Norwich had to wait until the 25th minute to create their first clear-cut chance, but Michael Turner saw his low effort from inside the penalty area kept out by Michel Vorm.

The deadlock was eventually broken 10 minutes before the break courtesy of Swansea's leading goalscorer. Jonathan de Guzman was the creator, flicking the ball into Michu's path, who in turn sent the ball into the roof of the net from close range.

However, Robert Snodgrass ensured that the teams went into half time level at one goal apiece when he scored in the 40th minute. Swansea goalkeeper Vorm attempted to collect a cross, but he misjudged the flight of the ball and Snodgrass capitalised to level up proceedings.
