Pukki adds insult to injury time for Harris
DANIEL FARKE hailed his Norwich side after this epic comeback win.
The City boss admitted he did not think they would be able to overcome so many setbacks to keep the Canaries flying high.
“So many things went against us and normally you would not come back from that but we showed great spirit to do that,” said Farke.
“The last few minutes were emotional and to turn it around is unbelievable but this group of players have great belief and character.
“To score a winner in the 97th minute was incredible.”
Teemu Pukki missed a penalty but still managed to bag a second brace in as many games.
Pukki’s winner, in the seventh minute of added time, topped a breathless game as Norwich twice came from behind.
The Lions tore into Norwich early on and Tom Elliott rose above City centre-back Timm Klose to nod in.
Marco Stiepermann sprinted past Conor McLaughlin before pulling the ball back for Pukki to put away his third goal in two games.
The Finn’s poorly struck penalty was saved by Ben Amos diving to his right.
The missed penalty disrupted City’s tempo until Moritz Leitner put them ahead in the 78th minute with a 25-yard strike.
The lead lasted less than a minute before Millwall struck twice within three minutes.
Ryan Leonard and Jed Wallace took advantage of City’s defensive shortcomings to nudge Millwall back in front. Substitute Jordan Rhodes turned in another City equaliser before Pukki bundled the ball in for the winner in the seventh minute of injury time.
Millwall boss Neil Harris said: “If you are a neutral you would love it. But I’m truly disappointed at the lack of professionalism.
“My daughter plays in the under-sevens and if they conceded goals like that they would be disappointed.
“I know that sounds damning of my team and as the captain of the ship I take responsibility but individuals have to put their hands up too.”
LATE WINNER: Teemu Pukki
