The Canaries' promotion party put on hold

CHAMPIONSHIP leaders Norwich were forced to wait to secure promotion to the Premier League after being held to a 2-2 draw by Stoke.

The Canaries could have secured top spot had they won and other results gone in their favour but they had to settle for a point for a fourth game in succession.

Onel Hernandez fired Daniel Farke’s side ahead after 24 minutes but Stoke responded after the break through Ashley Williams.

Teemu Pukki, netting his 28th league goal of the season, restored Norwich’s lead against the run of play but a low strike from Tom Edwards ensured a deserved draw for the Potters.
