Result: Norwich City stage comeback win against West Ham United

Gary Hooper, Robert Snodgrass and Leroy Fer score in the second half as Norwich City come from a goal down to beat West Ham United 3-1 at home.

Norwich City have registered a 3-1 comeback victory over West Ham United at home in the Premier League to climb out of the relegation zone.

The hosts had the game's first chance as early as the second minute when Anthony Pilkington forced a save out of Jussi Jaaskelainen.

It was West Ham, though, who came closest to opening the scoring at Carrow Road in the early minutes when Guy Demel headed a free kick against the crossbar in the 12th minute.

However, there was no denying the visitors just past the half-hour mark when they surged ahead through Ravel Morrison. Razvan Rat and Kevin Nolan combined to set up the 20-year-old for an easy finish from close range.

Norwich staged a second-half comeback and stormed back to restore parity in the 53rd minute when Gary Hooper slotted home a penalty.

Jaaskelainen brought Hooper down inside the Hammers' 18-yard box and the forward himself stepped up to successfully convert the spot kick.

Norwich could have gone 2-1 up in the 70th minute had Jonathan Howson's curling effort not crashed against the West Ham bar.

However, two minutes later the home side did take the lead when Robert Snodgrass scored from a direct free kick.
