Town, for whom keeper Alex Smithies saved a penalty from Chris Eagles, hit back after being under the cosh to stay 15th in the table.

And midfielder Norwood smiled: “We showed character to keep going and we seem to be getting good at nicking late goals.

“We’ve done it against Nottingham Forest, Blackburn, Charlton and now Bolton, and it’s a good habit to have.”

Having been handed a ninth-minute lead through Zat Knight’s own goal, Lee Novak then hit the bar for Town.

Bolton turned the screw in the second half, when Mark Davies and Eagles netted, and Norwood admitted: “They deserved the lead.

“But we have some strong lads in our dressing room and we deserved what could turn out to be a very valuable point.”
