Norwich struck late on to deny Derby a return to top spot in the Sky Bet Championship as the Canaries twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at the iPro Stadium.

Defender Steven Whittaker was the unlikely saviour for the visitors as his 89th-minute strike earned Neil Adams' men a point.

Norwich's first equaliser came from Cameron Jerome early in the second half, after Johnny Russell had netted just before half-time to give Derby a lead they barely deserved.

The Canaries were not on level terms for long though as their former striker Chris Martin quickly restored the Rams' lead from the penalty spot.

Norwich boss: Fans right to boo team

Norwich manager Neil Adams could understand the frustration of the fans as his side slipped to a 2-1 home defeat against Reading.

There was a chorus of boos at the final whistle, with the Carrow Road faithful making it clear exactly what they felt about the result.

The supporters were perfectly within their rights to react the way they did. They were excellent during the game and really got behind the team, but at the end they let their feelings be known.

I can understand the way they are feeling because once again we have shot ourselves in the foot today and it is not good enough.

We have been undone by two set-plays. They have delivered the corner to the tallest player on the pitch and twice he has headed it in.

Ironically we have been defending set-plays well this season - but that just wasn't good enough.

Young defender Jake Cooper was the Reading hero as they emerged from a poor run of away form with an excellent 2-1 win at misfiring Norwich.

The 19-year-old opened his account for the Royals with two first-half headers to earn the points from the Sky Bet Championship tussle after Gary Hooper had fired the hosts into an early lead.

It was Reading's first win in seven away matches - while Norwich have now only won once in 10 games and the team managed by Neil Adams were loudly booed off by frustrated fans at the final whistle.

Leroy Fer is undergoing a medical at QPR ahead of £7million move from Norwich, Press Association Sport understands.

The 24-year-old midfielder impressed after moving to Carrow Road from FC Twente last summer, although was unable to help the club avoid relegation.

The Dutchman is set to sign a three-year deal at Loftus Road, where he could soon be joined by Chile international Eduardo Vargas.

The Napoli striker is attracting interest from across Europe and, having signed compatriot Mauricio Isla, the Hoops are hoping to get a deal over the line potentially the next 48 hours.
