Championship: Norwich 1-1 Bournemouth

In-form Norwich had to settle for a point despite Lewis Grabban putting them in front against former club Bournemouth at Carrow Road.

Grabban headed home Nathan Redmond’s cross as the Canaries looked for a fourth successive Championship win.

But Bournemouth kept their composure and levelled in first-half stoppage time when Callum Wilson slotted home.

Norwich sub Cameron Jerome headed just wide after the break and Marc Pugh shot straight at the keeper in reply.

Bournemouth, unbeaten in their nine previous visits to Carrow Road in all competitions, opted for a five-man midfield to try and stifle the Norwich threat.

They enjoyed plenty of early possession and Dan Gosling fired over from distance from a clever backheel by Junior Stanislas.

The Cherries paid the penalty for slack marking, however, as Steven Whittaker and Redmond combined well on the right before the latter sent over a perfect delivery for an unmarked Grabban to score his fifth goal in four games in six yards.

The striker then dragged a 25-yard effort wide and Kyle Lafferty and Redmond also tested Bournemouth keeper Lee Camp as Norwich pressed for a second.
