Norwich has likely earned another season in the English Premier League after drawing with visiting Everton 2-2 on Saturday.

Norwich, promoted to the EPL last summer after a six-season absence, moved 12 points clear of the relegation zone with six matches left.

Striker Grant Holt scored the crucial equalizer with 14 minutes to go, his 13th in the league. He's the second-highest English goalscorer in the EPL after Wayne Rooney.

Nikica Jelavic put Everton ahead with a smart backheel, then Jonny Howson leveled just before halftime with his first score for Norwich. Jelavic regained the lead for Everton with his fourth goal in his last four games.
