Late Olsson strike gives Norwich win against Newcastle

NORWICH, England (AP) An injury-time strike from Martin Olsson gave Norwich a thrilling 3-2 win against fellow strugglers Newcastle in the English Premier League on Saturday.

A header from Timm Klose on the stroke of halftime gave Norwich the lead, before Aleksandar Mitrovic scored the first of his two goals in the 71st minute.

Norwich took the lead again three minutes later, Dieumerci Mbokani scoring from the edge of the area, before Mitrovic scored from a penalty on 86 minutes following an unnecessary handball by Gary O'Neil.

The winner came in the 93rd minute with Olsson drilling home from close range.

Norwich stays in 17th place on 31 points, four points above the relegation zone.

Newcastle is six points from safety.
