Norwich City's Under-23s produced a stunning comeback to claim a 3-3 draw against Wolves in the Premier League Cup.
The home side looked set for a comfortable win at AFC Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium when they led 3-1 with the game entering the final minute.
But Matt Gill's side pulled one back through Tristan Abrahams' excellent finish and completed the great escape in the fourth minute of injury-time when Todd Cantwell converted a long free-kick with what proved to be the last kick of the match.
Wolves looked to be cruising after going 3-0 up in the first half with goals from Donovan Wilson (18), Aaron Collins (33) and Sherwin Seedorf (36) but Cantwell scored what proved to be a crucial goal just before the break to set up the thrilling finale.
There were no players with first team experience in the squad. Starting line-up: Oxborough, Aarons, Odusina, Wallis, Kamal, McIntosh, Phillips, Cantwell, Aransibia, Fonkeu, Abrahams.
