Most Read

A - August 13, Wigan Athletic (a) - Wes Hoolahan kick-starts City's season - The Canaries Premier League journey started with a well-earned point at the DW Stadium thanks to Wes Hoolahan's close-range strike just before half-time.

Steve Morison skipped down the right wing and Ali Al Habsi could only parry his cross into the path of Hoolahan, who rifled home from eight yards.

B - August 21, Stoke City (h) - Ruddy marvellous as John stops Stoke - The Potters may have grabbed a late equaliser in the end but goalkeeper John Ruddy had already lit up the first home match of the season with a penalty save from former Ipswich striker Jon Walters.

Leon Barnett was given his marching orders in the 64th minute after bringing down Jon Walters but Ruddy brilliantly saved Walters' low right-footed effort from the resulting spot-kick, the first of many miraculous moments to come from the City stopper throughout the campaign.

C - October 22, Liverpool (a) - Grant Holt silences the Kop End - Striker Grant Holt came off the bench to score with a stunning header and earn Norwich City a point at Anfield, marking his 100th appearance for the Canaries by powerfully heading home Anthony Pilkington's cross to equalise on the hour, just four minutes after coming on as a substitute.

D - October 22, Liverpool (a) - John Ruddy somehow saves Suarez shot - City were grateful to a stunning save by goalkeeper John Ruddy from a Luis Suarez volley in the fifth minute of stoppage time in the second half, to guarantee a hard-earned point at Anfield for the Canaries.

E - October 29, Blackburn Rovers (h) - Famous fighting spirit returns in dramatic style - Norwich City produced one of their trademark comebacks to earn an unlikely point with a 3-3 draw against struggling Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road.

City had found themselves 3-1 down but in the fourth of five added minutes Rovers midfielder Steve Nzonzi inexplicably handled under heavy pressure and Grant Holt stepped up to crash the penalty into the net and earn City a draw from the brink of defeat.

F - December 17, Everton (a) - Tricky footwork from Grant Holt shocks Toffees - Skipper Grant Holt's seventh goal of the season gave the Canaries a half-time lead and looked set to be enough for three points until Leon Osman struck a late equaliser.

Holt put City ahead in the 28th minute with his 60th goal for the club, a splendid close-range finish on the turn, after Steve Morison helped on a free-kick by David Fox.

G - December 31, Fulham (h) - Simeon Jackson rediscovers his magic touch - City ended a memorable 2011 with another of their famous late goals at Carrow Road to earn a point against Fulham. And it was fitting that Simeon Jackson, the man whose goal clinched promotion for the Canaries from the Championship, should be the man to send another 26,000-plus crowd home happy.

Three and a half minutes of stoppage time had been played when Jackson headed home from a cross by fellow substitute Elliott Bennett to give Paul Lambert's men a share of the spoils.

H - February 11, Swansea City (a) - Grant Holt shows Swans what he's made of - Skipper Grant Holt struck twice as City produced a barnstorming second-half performance to secure a 3-2 victory over Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

The big centre-forward made it 3-1 in the 63rd minute with a clinical finish after Andrew Surman picked out Elliott Bennett and his pass was perfectly judged for Holt to drill a low right-foot shot past Vorm.

Holt then pulled off his shirt in response to the home side's taunts about his physique, to flex his muscles and hit back with his own message.

I - April 9, Tottenham Hotspur (a) - Elliott Bennett scores a spectacular winner - Elliott Bennett's first goal for City gave them a magnificent victory over Champions League hopefuls Tottenham at White Hart Lane. The winger took possession on the right side of the Spurs area from Russell Martin's pass in the 66th minute, before rifling in a powerful right-footed shot that gave the keeper no chance.

J - May 5, Arsenal (a) - Steve Morison finds his shooting boots - Substitute Steve Morison struck five minutes from time at the Emirates Stadium to earn City a well-deserved point from their final Premier League away game of the season.

Morison's 10th goal of the season came from a perfect through-ball by Jonny Howson in the 85th minute, before Morison kept his cool to blast home from a tight angle.
