Alex Neil’s Canaries picked up another point in their quest to stay in the Premier League, holding Stoke to a 1-1 draw at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Jack Butland was the star of the match, making a series of strong saves for the Potters.

Shaqiri’s free kick curled around over the pack to meet Diouf’s diving header, and Stoke had a 1-0 lead.

But Norwich fired back through Martin, who saw his header turned aside by Jack Butland moments earlier before getting past Geoff Cameron to nutmeg the Stoke keeper and tie the score.
