Two injury-time goals send Norwich top of table

Two injury-time goals send Norwich top of table

Pukki (centre) joined Norwich from Danish side Brondby in June

A 97th-minute strike from Teemu Pukki saw Norwich fight back from 3-2 down to beat Millwall and extend their winning run to five games.

Tom Elliott headed the Lions in front in the 24th minute before Pukki fired in an equaliser after the break.

Pukki then had a spot-kick saved before Mortiz Leitner fired in from 22 yards but Ryan Leonard’s shot made it 2-2.

Jed Wallace fired Millwall back in front before Jordan Rhodes and Pukki struck in injury-time.

An incredible final 16 minutes saw four goals scored with Millwall looking like they would claim all three points going into time added on.

But Rhodes and Pukki had other ideas as their late goals left the Canaries two points clear of Leeds at the top of the Championship.

The Lions took the lead midway through the first half as Jack Cooper turned the ball to Elliott who was able to nod past keeper Tim Krul.

Pukki then claimed his opening goal and the first of the afternoon’s three equalisers as he turned in Marco Stiepermann from inside the area.

The Finland international was then denied from the spot after Onel Hernandez’s goal-bound shot was handled by Murray Wallace.

Norwich did then get a second through Leitner’s thunderous low drive before Leonard struck from close range two minutes later.

Jed Wallace then punished Krul by intercepting his weak throw and scoring after a one-two with Leonard.

But the Canaries were not done and continued their impressive winning run as Rhodes and Pukki both found the net from inside the box.
