Another late Adam Idah winner meant Norwich City came from behind to earn last-minute victory on the road in their 2-1 win over Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

A George Tanner own goal cancelled out Jason Knight's first-half opener before Idah's smart finish sent the away end into raptures, ending David Wagner's pointless Robins hoodoo and helping ease relegation battle fears for the Canaries.

The win lifts Norwich one place to 13th, four points off the Championship play-offs.

Onel Hernandez hit the post in the first half as the visitors dominated the game's opening, but sloppy defending again left them behind when Andreas Weimann's low cross was palmed straight to Knight to break the deadlock.

Norwich started the second half positively, however, and were level 14 minutes into it. Gabriel Sara's raking long pass found Dimitris Giannoulis at the back post, and his centre was diverted beyond Bristol goalkeeper Max O'Leary to restore parity.

Kenny McLean's chip forward then ended up at Idah's feet in the dying seconds of the game, his goal completing a late, late show for his side.
