The points were shared at Carrow Road as Wigan Athletic came from a goal behind to take a point against Norwich City on Sunday.

In a scrappy start to the game it was Norwich who took an early lead thanks to Wes Hoolahan, who latched onto a Simeon Jackson cross to volley the ball past Ali Al-Habsi on 10 minutes.

Wigan settled into the game and tested John Ruddy with some long distance shots but could not get themselves on the scoresheet before the half-time whistle.

The Latics continued to improve and managed to level the score on the 68th minute when substitute Shaun Maloney found Victor Moses with a perfect pass, before the Nigerian striker took the ball past Ruddy to fire the ball home.

And the visitors could have taken the lead with only minutes to go when Maloney found Mohamed Diame, only for him to place the shot over the crossbar from eight yards out.

Diame dragged another opportunity in injury-time wide of the target and both teams had to settle for a draw in a game Wigan should have possibly won, having enjoyed the better of the chances.
