Norwich late show sees off Spurs

Published Add your comment

Two late strikes and a penalty save from Mark Bunn ensured Norwich's passage through to the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup with a 2-1 win against Tottenham at Carrow Road.

Gareth Bale, who had torn Norwich apart here last season, seemed to have put Spurs on course for victory when he drove home a 20-yard shot in the second-half, but two goals in the last six minutes gave the Canaries an unlikely victory.

First substitute Alex Tettey's shot flew in off the out-stretched leg of Jan Vertonghen and then Simeon Jackson pounced on an error by Hugo Lloris to make it 2-1 with three minutes left. The drama did not end there, however, as Kyle Walker was upended in the Norwich box by Marc Tierney a minute later, but Bunn saved Clint Dempsey's spot-kick.
