Salvaging another late winner in epic style at Carrow Road really has got Norwich City believing an unexpected promotion push could be possible this season, following today’s 3-2 victory over Bolton.

The Canaries were on their way to a smooth victory over struggling Wanderers when they were 2-0 ahead with an hour played, thanks to goals from Mario Vrancic and Marco Stiepermann.

However, the Trotters muscled their way back into the match to draw level at 2-2, thanks to Sammy Ameobi and then defender Mark Beevers scoring the equaliser in the 83rd minute.

However, just like last month’s dramatic 4-3 epic against Millwall, City’s top scorer was to have the final say – slamming home on the half-volley in the third minute of injury-time to spark memorable celebrations.

With Leeds beating QPR 2-1 at Elland Road it looked like top spot was going to be conceded but Daniel Farke’s team found a way to extend their unbeaten run to nine matches and win a fifth home game on the spin.

It leaves the Canaries six points clear of third-placed Derby ahead of next Saturday’s trip to Bristol City, and nine points clear of seventh-placed Nottingham Forest.

Meanwhile, with Ipswich losing 2-0 at Stoke, it means Paul Lambert’s team remain rock bottom and fully 32 points adrift of the Norwich as the halfway point of the campaign approaches.
