Norwich United twice came from behind to share a six-goal thriller at Plantation Park.

The Planters trailed at the break through a 13th-minute own goal, but the game really came into life just after the interval, Jordan Blyth beating the offside trap to lift over the goalkeeper and then Ross King scrambling home from close range to put the Planters ahead within five minutes of the turn around.

Wivenhoe were given a lifeline with a penalty against Gareth Simpson for hand-ball with the Planter faithful wondering how he could have got out of the way!
