ROCK-bottom Norwich United seemed like the perfect opponents for Soham, looking to get back to winning ways, but it was the title-chasers who ended up sneaking a point.
After conceding five goals last week, Soham boss Ian Benjamin decided to start with five at the back. Charles Libam missed Soham's first chance in the 15th minute, when he fired over from close range after Keke St Hilaire's corner.

Norwich took the lead a minute later when Chris Squires rode a challenge before beating Dean Greygoose at his near post from inside the box. Andy Furnell almost equalised a minute before half-time when his diving header, after Michael Simpson's floated pass, forced a fine save on the goal-line.
Soham reverted to a back-four in the second half but the hosts continued to create pressure.
Greygoose pulled off a good double-save in the 47th minute and Norwich substitute Simon Mann hit the crossbar twice, immediately after coming on, just after the hour-mark.
Soham's equaliser came with three minutes remaining when Scott Johnson made a strong run down the left and crossed for Aaron Turner to finish from close range.
