Martin on song for Canaries

11 September 2010 05:30
Chris Martin did his talking on the pitch with a late winner as Norwich came from behind to stretch their unbeaten run to four league games with a 2-1 win over Barnsley. Martin appears before Swaffham Magistrates Court on Tuesday after being arrested and charged with common assault over the Bank Holiday weekend. But his strike capped a fine comeback for the Canaries after Barnsley had threatened to win at Carrow Road for the first time in 73 years. Norwich dominated the first half but the visitors snatched the lead against the run of play in stoppage time when summer signing Jay McEveley headed home Kieran Trippier`s free-kick. However, the 63rd-minute introduction of substitute Anthony McNamee turned the game in Norwich`s favour. Within eight minutes his cross was turned into his own net by Stephen Foster before the winger played his part in the winner 10 minutes from time. His delivery caused havoc in the Barnsley defence before Adam Drury found Martin, who made no mistake from 12 yards for his first league goal of the season.
