Don't panic - Robbie Brady was back in action for Norwich last night

Newcastle move top of the Championship table as Norwich held at Craven Cottage.

ROBBIE BRADY RETURNED to action last night but Norwich City slipped off the top of the Championship table as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Fulham.

Brady was hospitalised with a nasty head injury following Ireland’s World Cup qualifier win over Georgia and missed the trip to Moldova three days later.

He also sat out Saturday’s 3-1 win over Rotherham, a game in which Wes Hoolahan scored for the Canaries, but was passed fit to start at Craven Cottage last night and played 85 minutes.

Norwich led 2-0 at the break thanks to two first-half penalties by Graham Dorrans but were pegged back in the second half as Stefan Johansen and Chris Martin scored to earn Fulham a point.

Newcastle moved to the top of the table with a 2-0 win at Barnsley.

Ireland’s next qualifier is against Austria in Vienna on 12 November.
