Norwich City bounced back from 2-0 down to force a draw at Coventry City.

The Ricoh Arena was treated to an entertaining game as The Sky Blues romped into an early lead. Norwich battled back to earn a point through substitute Craig Fleming's late leveller.

Gary McSheffrey scored very early on with a wonderful solo effort, firing past Robert Green with the aid of a deflection off Adam Drury.

The lead was doubled after ten minutes as Dele Adebola collected a pass from Claus Jorgensen and fought off Gary Doherty to beat the advancing Green.

Peter Thorne almost pulled one back for The Canaries but their hopes were hit when Darren Huckerby was forced off through injury after heavy challenges by Richard Duffy and Michael Doyle.

Defender Calum Davenport, against his former club, pulled one back by nodding home Drury's cross before half time.

It gave Norwich the platform to complete the comeback and they were unlucky to have a goal by Jim Brennan ruled out by referee Rob Styles.

The equaliser did arrive seven minutes from time when Fleming found the net after a mistake by Marton Fulop.
