Wolverhampton - Wolverhampton Wanderers equalised twice on Tuesday to salvage a 2-2 English Premiership draw with visiting Norwich at Molineux.

Former Wolves midfielder Andrew Surman put Norwich ahead in the 12th minute only for Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, who replaced the axed Kevin Doyle, to level before half-time. Substitute Simon Jackson restored Norwich’s lead with his first touch but Ronald Zubar’s first goal of the campaign with eight minutes left rescued Wolves.

The result lifted Wolves one spot to 16th place in the standings, two points above the relegation zone.

Wolves made an encouraging start when Ebanks-Blake’s effort from a free-kick by Stephen Hunt was blocked by Zak Whitbread. But Surman drew a save from goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, who also pushed away a shot from Steve Morison, and Norwich soon took the lead through Surman’s first Premier League goal.

Wes Hoolahan burst down the left flank before crossing for the unmarked Surman to head past Hennessey.

Hunt missed a great chance to equalize after 26 minutes but Ebanks-Blake managed to do so with a rebound shot that just trickled over the line.

Jackson restored Norwich’s lead when he touched in Morison’s cross from close range but Zubar headed in from Matt Jarvis’ corner and Jarvis almost won it at the end with a fierce drive that went just wide.
