10-man Norwich draws 1-1 at Sunderland in EPL

March 17, 2013

Norwich held on for a 1-1 draw against Sunderland on Sunday after playing most of the Premier League match with 10 men following goalkeeper Mark Dunn's sending off.

Norwich was leading 1-0 at the Stadium of Light through Wes Hoolahan's close-range header when Bunn was dismissed on the half-hour for handling outside his area.

It got worse for Norwich five minutes before halftime when defender Sebastien Bassong conceded a penalty, and Craig Gardner leveled from the spot. Gardner later forced a vital save from substitute goalkeeper Lee Camp.

Norwich appealed for a 70th-minute penalty for handball.

Norwich is now 10 points above of the relegation zone and Sunderland is seven points clear.
