United looked set to draw level with the Canaries at the summit on Saturday after two goals from Luciano Becchio had put them 2-1 up at Victoria Park, but Sweeney powered in a 93rd-minute header to keep the visitors two points adrift.[LNB]Argentinian striker Becchio saw his looping header expertly tipped onto the crossbar by Scott Flinders before he scored after 23 minutes, turning home Jermaine Beckford's deft chip from 12 yards.[LNB]But battling Pool hit back after the break and Adam Boyd levelled in the 71st minute, cracking home an unstoppable low volley from 20 yards.[LNB]Becchio, however, appeared to have the final say seven minutes later when Flinders flapped at a corner, Lubo Michalik's header hit the bar and he tapped in from close range.[LNB]But Sweeney's powerful far-post header from six yards after Boyd had flicked on a Ritchie Jones free-kick earned a deserved point for the hosts.[LNB][LNB]
