PREMIER LEAGUE: Blackburn denied by controversial late penalty at Norwich

Blackburn conceded two late goals at Carrow Road as they shared a 3-3 draw with Norwich.

An entertaining game ended in controversy as Norwich were awarded a penalty in injury time as Rovers Steven Nzonzi was harshly adjudged to have handled.

Blackburn took the lead just before the break through David Hoilett but quickly after the restart Norwich restored parity as Steve Morison fired home.

Rovers seemed to have made the game safe with two quickfire goals in two minutes.

First Yakubu then Chris Samba gave the visitor’s a two goal cushion only for the Canaries to get back into the game with a fortunate goal on 82 minutes as Bradley Johnson’s wayward shot took a deflection of Gael Givet to give the home side hope.

Then came the injury time leveller which keeps Blackburn in the relegation places.

Venue: Carrow Road
