Teemu Pukki’s 27th Championship goal of the season earned Norwich a point

Teemu Pukki scored a later equaliser as Championship leaders Norwich City took another step towards promotion by coming from behind to draw at Wigan Athletic.

The Canaries had trailed when Reece James calmly scored from the penalty spot just before half-time after Ben Godfrey had controversially been adjudged to have handled Sam Morsy’s shot.

But Pukki rescued a draw for the Canaries when he latched on to Kenny McLean’s pass and calmly slid the ball past Wigan keeper Christian Walton.

The point leaves the Canaries seven points clear of third-placed Sheffield United and needing a maximum of six more points to secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Wigan, who have now won only once in their past 12 games, remain fourth from bottom, two points clear of the relegation zone.
