Two late goals for Norwich City's U21s rescued a dramatic point against Fulham to end a run of three consecutive defeats for Alan Neilson's men. 

City's youngsters welcomed back Palmeiras loan midfielder Pedro Lima to the bench after an injury with Uriah Djedje making his first start alongside Adian Manning. Elliot Myles and Gabe Forsyth were missing due to international duty. 

Ken Aboh, who has been touted with a first-team call up, started alongside Daniel Ogwuru with winger Joe Duffy also returning to the side. 

It took Norwich just three minutes to take the lead through Aboh, who supplied a fine finish after being picked out by Duffy inside the area. The strike was the teenager's 11th in just 14 Premier League Two games this term. 

Norwich then needed Dan Barden to produce a stop to deny Lamar Gordon, the Welsh youth international was making his third appearance since returning from a lengthy knee injury sustained during his loan spell at Maidstone last season. 

Barden was unable to prevent Fulham from equalising after 16 minutes when the dangerous Callum Osmand was played through and produced an excellent chip to restore parity at City's Colney training centre. 

Both sides went close to taking the lead thereafter. Manning connected sweetly with Finley Welch's corner on the volley, but Fulham's keeper Alfie McNally was equal to the effort. Norwich then called upon Barden to produce an excellent stop at full stretch to prevent Osmand from pushing Fulham ahead. 

Ogwuru and Aboh both went close before half-time, but the first half ended level despite being edged by the visitors in terms of possession. 

Shortly after half time, Osmand doubled his tally to put the away side ahead for the first time in the contest. 

Barden was replaced at half-time by Ellis Craven, and the substitute produced a fine double stop to keep Norwich in the contest.

Fulham would add a third 10 minutes after Osmand's second, with Gordon's cross being diverted into the net by Joshua King. 

A flurry of changes helped get Norwich back into the contest - Welch saw a fierce effort tipped over by McNally, whilst Dubem Eze's stop was pushed behind for a corner by the Whites' shot-stopper. 

From the bench, Lima produced his sixth goal of the season after seizing upon a loose touch in the area. The Brazilian displayed composure from close range to bury the opportunity to grab a goal back for City. 

Then, in the fifth minute of added time, a Norwich breakaway by Marcel McIntosh saw the defender cross deep for Duffy at the back post - he met the ball to convert a dramatic late equaliser and rescue a valuable point for City.
