Norwich came from a goal down to take their unbeaten run to four matches.The Canaries dominated the first half but Barnsley, seeking to win at Carrow Road for the first time in 73 years, took the lead in stoppage time. [LNB]Jay McEveley headed in a free-kick from Kieran Trippier, but just past the hour a cross from Anthony McNamee was turned into his own net by Stephen Foster. [LNB]And substitute McNamee helped to create the Norwich winner, which was slotted in by Chris Martin from 12 yards. [LNB]Norwich, who brought in England U-19 international Declan Rudd and Simon Lappin and gave a home debut to loan signing Leon Barnett, saw chances go wide of the mark, then when they did hit the target they were denied by a fine save from Barnsley keeper Lee Steele. [LNB][LNB] [LNB][LNB] Grant Holt crossed for Korey Smith, whose turn and shot was superbly parried by Steele, before the Tykes eventually cleared their lines following a scramble in the six-yard box. [LNB]The visitors, who replaced the injured Hugo Colace with Nathan Doyle, took the lead against the run of play when McEveley nodded in from six yards for his first goal for the club. [LNB]Adam Hammill curled an effort from 12 yards wide as Barnsley started well after the break but the introduction of McNamee turned the game in Norwich's favour. [LNB][LNB] [LNB][LNB] Within eight minutes of his arrival, his cross was inadvertently diverted in by Foster, and another centre caused more uncertainty in the Barnsley defence before Adam Drury found Martin to hit the winner 10 minutes from time.
