WOLVES 1 CANARIES 1 - Key moments, ratings and stats
- Credit: PA
Norwich City were denied a rare victory by Wolves at Molineux, Rayan Ait-Nouri's header cancelling out Teemu Pukki's opener.
The Finn had missed two chances to break the deadlock before scoring his 11th of the season, first rolling agonisingly wide of John Ruddy's far post before the ex-City 'keeper denied him from close range.
Pukki made it 1-0 eventually, however, when Max Aarons sent him down the line, he cut in and his deflected strike wrong-footed Ruddy at his near post.
The Canaries were denied all three points, however, when Ait-Nouri headed home, the Wanderers number three converting after Norwich failed to clear a crossed free-kick.
