Goalkeeper Daniel Bentley’s blunder gifted Norwich a point in a game that Brentford were in control of for large periods at Griffin Park.

Timm Klosse’s deflected header on 82 minutes drew the sides level after Julian Jeanvier’s opener in the first half.

The point leaves the Bees 18th in the league but they’ll feel they should’ve taken all three points from a side sitting in second.

The home side started the brighter and dominated possession in the centre of the park.

Their first real effort came through the league’s top scorer on 17 minutes. A neat flick from Sergi Canos set the Frenchman through who saw his effort shave the post from the edge of the box.

Frank’s men got their deserved opener three minutes later when Jeanvier rose tallest at a corner to power home past a motionless Tim Krull in the Norwich net.

Brentford played out the rest of the half looking a far cry from the side who sit near the bottom of the Championship and looked the more likely to get a second than to concede.

The Bees nearly doubled their lead ten minutes into the second half but Maupay’s header was superbly parried by a full stretched Krul.

True to form Norwich came back in the final 20 minutes and started to pose Daniel Bentley’s goal some questions.

First Max Aarons drew a fine save from the shot-stopper from close range before Mario Vrancic went closest but his free-kick whistle past the post.

The Canaries got their equaliser in comical fashion eight minutes before full time as Bentley failed to keep out Klosse’s weak header from a corner.

It won't be one the keeper will want to see again.

Both sides went in search for a winner and it was Brentford who thought they’d snatched the points but Krul produced another fine stop to keep Maupay’s 20-yard effort out.
