Norwich City have been great comeback Kings so far this season and it was no different on Saturday against Birmingham City.
After last Saturday’s incredible response against Cardiff City, where Norwich found themselves 2-0 down at half-time and managed to pull off a 3-2 victory, they had to attempt to do the same against The Blues.
Before the game kicked-off, Lewis Grabban was named the Anglian Home Improvements Player of the Month. It was a well-deserved award as he grabbed 5 goals in as many games.
It only took 8 minutes for the visitors to steal the lead. Despite a massive amount of pressure from the yellows, a counter attack from The Blues saw Callum Reilly get on the score sheet. His shot from the edge of the box took a horrid deflection off Martin and the ball found its way through a wrong-footed Ruddy.
Birmingham then had a good penalty shout as Martin looked to have pulled Clayton Donaldson down in the area, but the referee dismissed the shouts.
This lead doubled just before the break with Demarai Gray coolly placing the ball in the bottom corner of the net.
Tettey had a chance to pull on back, but he drove his shot wide. There were shouts for a penalty moments later after it appeared that Jonathan Grounds handled the ball, but the appeals were again waived away.
Adams worked his magic at half-time because The Canaries came out all guns blazing and it didn’t take long for former Birmingham front man, Cameron Jerome, to bag a goal. Russell Martin dragged the ball back from the by-line picking out an unmarked Jerome who made no mistake.
Jerome then got his second just three minutes later thanks to a pin-point cross from Redmond which found the new signing’s head.
Chances arose for both teams to win it, but some good goalkeeping from Ruddy and a misdirected header from Turner meant the game ended a 2-2 draw.
Cameron Jerome was named the Anglian Home Improvements Man of the Match.
