A 90th minute own goal gave Norwich United a point as they twice came from behind at AFC Sudbury's Wardale Williams Stadium.

Billy Holland found the top corner from 20 yards to give the hosts a third minute lead. The Planters equalised eight minutes before the break. Hipperson's shot was blocked but Pollock reacted quickly and found Nathan Stewart who shot home from 10 yards out. Hipperson then forced two good saves from ex-Planters and Lowestoft keeper Jake Jessup.

After the break Stewart twice found Tim Henery who hit a shot and a header high before the hosts scored against the run of play. Tom Dettmar's cut back from the byline found Ollie Peters at the far post and he had time to pick his spot.

The Planters weren't to be denied a point however, and in the 90th minute Hipperson's fierce shot from the right was deflected into his own goal by Joe Whight.

AFC Sudbury: Jessup, Crisell, Clowsley, Holland, French (Mills 40), Whight, Hunter (Munday 55), Dettmar (Colclough 75), McKenzie, Horne, Peters. Unused sub: Dunnage.
