Ca­naries score at the death to stun Mill­wall

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - SOCCER -

JOR­DAN RHODES and Teemu Pukki struck in stop­page time as Nor­wich recorded an in­cred­i­ble 4-3 vic­tory over Mill­wall at Car­row Road. Hav­ing thrown away a 2-1 lead to fall 3-2 be­hind, Rhodes and Pukki helped the Ca­naries to a fifth suc­ces­sive league win in dra­matic cir­cum­stances.

Pukki had can­celled out Tom El­liott’s opener and then saw his penalty saved by Mill­wall ’keeper Ben Amos be­fore Moritz Leit­ner edged the Ca­naries in front. But in an as­ton­ish­ing fi­nal 11 min­utes, Ryan Leonard and Murray Wal­lace thought they had pinched the points for the Lions only for Rhodes to level and Pukki to pounce in stop­page time.
