Earning a 2-2 draw away at league leaders Wolves has thrilled Norwich City supporters this evening, thanks to a last-gasp Nelson Oliveira strike. Here’s some of the best of the reaction from Canaries fans.

An entertaining first half saw Diogo Jota leave Christoph Zimmermann for dust and fire a low shot which came off the post and went in off Jamal Lewis.

Alfred N’Diaye met a Barry Douglas corner to double the lead for the hosts in the 25th minute but within Zimmermann had made amends within two minutes, heading home a James Maddison free-kick from the left – scoring his first City goal.

Mario Vrancic was twice let off the hook in the second half after losing possession, seeing Ivan Cavaleiro fire wide and a heroic Zimmermann block with his head when already on the floor.

Otherwise the visitors largely dictated play and striker Oliveira – without a goal in 11 games – came off the bench and thumped a shot from almost 30 yards which slipped through former Canaries keeper John Ruddy’s gloves, following on from Timm Klose’s late leveller against Ipswich on Sunday.
