Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries endure a roller coaster of emotions in Reading draw.

Despite dominating the game, it was Yakou Meite’s first-half strike that had Jose Gomes’ Royals in pole position until four minutes from time.

That was when City’s centre-backs took charge – Ben Godfrey rifling home a wonderful strike before Christoph Zimmermann rose highest to head City into an 88th minute lead.

But for once, Norwich were sucker-punched as Andy Rinomhota’s deft strike in the 97th minute ensured the relegation-threatened visitors left Carrow Road with a point.
