Graham Dorrans scored a superb 20-yard winner as Norwich City fought back to beat Nottingham Forest and go second in the Championship table.
City’s Wes Hoolahan had a penalty saved by Vladimir Stojkovic and the hosts responded with their best spell of the match to take the lead through a close-range Apostolos Vellios strike.
But Jonny Howson scored from a tight angle to level after the break.
And with the Canaries on top, Dorrans found the bottom corner to win it.
The midfielder’s strike gave the excellent Stojkovic no chance and sealed an impressive 20-minute spell after the interval.
Forest were seeking a fourth consecutive home win at the start of the season for the first time since 1984 and looked on track when Vellios followed up to tap in after Eric Lichaj’s effort had hit the post.
But Norwich had looked the sharper and more inventive in the final third, with Hoolahan, Dorrans and Robbie Brady all prominent in the early stages.
Hoolahan’s earlier missed spot-kick, after he was fouled by Nicolao Dumitru, had looked like being costly.
However, the Canaries were soon level after the break when Howson netted following a corner and, after relentless pressure, Dorrans put the visitors ahead.
Forest brought on Nicklas Bendtner and forced some late pressure but failed to create any telling opportunities.
