The visitors opened the scoring after just 12 minutes when Nathan Dyer's right-footed effort proved too good for Canaries goalkeeper John Ruddy.

Defender Ashley Williams maintained his team's lead by heading Leroy Fer's effort off the line shortly before the break.

However, perseverance soon paid off for Chris Hughton's men. Gary Hooper continued his free-scoring form by firing past Michel Vorm from outside the area on the stroke of half time.

Hughton's charges came within the width of the crossbar of taking the lead on 68 minutes, as Michael Turner saw his header cannon off the woodwork.

Hooper forced an expert save from Vorm soon after but the Dutchman's fingertips were enough to ensure parity as the spoils were ultimately shared.
