ADAM Drury’s own goal cost Norwich two precious points in their pursuit of automatic promotion as depleted Doncaster secured an unlikely point at Carrow Road, writes digital editor Graham Walker.

Paul Lambert’s side started slowly, but stole into a first-half lead through leading goalscorer Grant Holt.

However, Canaries defender Drury headed John Oster’s second-half corner into his own net and Rovers held on to end a run of four straight defeats.

Rovers chairman John Ryan had wanted the game called off because of his side’s crippling injury list and with just one win in their previous nine league matches, his concerns were understandable.

But the visitors took the game to Norwich in the first half and after withstanding a storm in the second half they struck back for a deserved point.
