Fulham 2-2 Norwich City

19 Oct

Chris Martin


Chris Martin, on loan at Fulham from Derby County, played for Norwich City between 2006 and 2013

Norwich City slipped from the top of the Championship table after Fulham’s Chris Martin scored a second-half equaliser against his former club.

Graham Dorrans put Norwich ahead from the spot after Scott Malone brought down Jacob Murphy in the area.

Malone gave away another penalty when he pulled Cameron Jerome down and Dorrans scored his second spot-kick.

Stefan Johansen deflected the ball home before Martin secured a point for Fulham with a superb solo finish.

The result meant Norwich dropped to second in the Championship behind Newcastle United, who earned a 2-0 win away at Barnsley.

Despite battling to win a point, Fulham slipped a place to 12th after Queens Park Rangers beat Bristol City.

The Canaries seemed to be in control after Dorrans’ second penalty of the night, but the visitors were revived by a slice of luck when Martin shot at goal and the ball cannoned off Johansen and into the net.

Norwich have now not managed a clean sheet in their last five games, and have conceded in every match at Fulham since January 1986.
