PREMIER LEAGUE: Norwich leave it late to snatch point against Fulham

Norwich looked on course for a second successive home defeat until Simeon Jackson headed an injury time leveller in the 1-1 draw with Fulham.

Fulham looked on course for only their second away win of the campaign as Carlos Orlando Sa scored his first top flight goal in the seventh minute.

The Cottagers dominated the first-half and deserved their lead as apart from a couple of scares from corners they had looked in control and Clint Dempsey even hit the woodwork.

But all this changed after the break as the Canaries piled on the pressure and with the introduction of substitute Jackson a point was saved.

He thoroughly deserved his goal for his performance and was rewarded deep into added time with a close range header past David Stockdale.

Norwich have now scored more headed goals this term (12) than any other team in the top flight.
