'Elation quickly followed by dejection' - here are the national newspapers' views on Norwich City's 2-2 draw at at home to West Ham in the Premier League.
• BBC Sport: 'At 2-0 up, they should have been easing to victory against a West Ham side that had suffered key injuries having been taken to extra-time in a midweek FA Cup replay win over Liverpool. However, when they needed cool heads, the home side capitulated as they lost their organisation and discipline.'
• The Guardian: 'That should have been that, but not here this season. Norwich's nervousness was painful to witness.'
• Daily Mail: 'It is becoming an all-too familiar feeling at Carrow Road: Elation quickly followed by dejection. Norwich City were 2-0 up with a chance to pull a couple of points clear of the relegation zone - but they blew it. Unless Alex Neil's side can hold on to the points they could have had, the Championship beckons next season.'

• The Mirror: 'Six consecutive defeats had left the Canaries in the bottom three and without a point since January 2. But for long periods they did not look like a side destined for the drop after a rousing second-half display.'
• The Sun: 'It's hard to believe that Norwich are fighting for their lives. There was such a lack of urgency about so much of their play it was as though they are drifting comfortably in mid-table and already thinking about their summer holidays.'
