Pukki adds in­sult to in­jury time for Har­ris

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! - By GREG ADAMS

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
