Simeon Jackson came off the bench to grab a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser for Norwich at Carrow Road.

Portugal forward Orlando Sa had netted early to put the visitors on course for a rare away win. Norwich, though, continued to press and just when time was running out, Jackson nodded in Elliott Bennett's right-wing cross to earn Paul Lambert's men a deserved share of the points.

The Canaries' defence was breached after just six minutes. Moussa Dembele was allowed to charge to the edge of the penalty area before feeding Sa, who drilled a low shot past John Ruddy into the bottom right corner.

Slowly Norwich managed to get some possession, but they continued to lack a telling final pass when in promising positions.

Captain Grant Holt -- the club's leading scorer -- was sent on for the start of the second half to inject new life into the Norwich attack.

Fulham did not look too stretched by the change until deep into stoppage-time when the home pressure finally allowed Jackson to snatch a point.
