VIDEO: Norwich City 2, Burnley 2

Chris Lakey reviews Norwich City's second-half fightback in their 2-2 draw against Burnley at Carrow Road.

Andrew Crofts earned Norwich City a point with a stoppage-time equaliser after a thrilling second half at Carrow Road – only to be sent off before the final whistle for a second yellow card.

The Canaries were on the verge of their fourth Championship home defeat of the season when the game entered time added on, but the midfielder thumped in his fourth goal of the season to save the day.

Substitute Chris Martin had earlier given City hope with a 71st minute goal from Crofts' centre, after Paul Lambert's men had trailed 2-0 at the interval, courtesy of two from Burnley's Martin Paterson.

Paterson, returning in place of top scorer Chris Iwelumo, justified his recall when he scored twice in the space of seven minutes, his first goals of the season, and City could have few complaints at the half-time score.

But the interval introduction of Anthony McNamee lifted the Canaries and they were well worth the point they gained, marred only by a forthcoming ban for Crofts, who was dismissed by referee Trevor Kettle after a foul on Tyrone Mears earned him his second yellow card.
