Winger Bennett and midfielder Odjidja-Ofoe played 90 minutes with defender Bennett lasting 67 minutes – all three having been on the substitutes bench in recent Sky Bet Championship matches.

Carlton Morris fired the Canaries into a ninth-minute lead and Elliott Bennett curled a shot against the inside of the far post before Tyias Browning levelled with a header with 12 minutes remaining.

It denied City top spot in the top tier of academy football but they have now lost just one of their last 13 Barclays Under-21’s Premier League encounters.

Coach Paul Wilkinson told the club’s official website: “It was frustrating, we created numerous opportunities and we weren’t ruthless enough really to finish them off.

“We were playing against a good team and we switched off at the back and we’ve been punished.

“We’ve lost one out of 13, though – I can’t ask for any more than that really.

“They’ve been terrific whether they’ve been first-team players, Under-21s players or Under-18s players, they’ve all had a great attitude.”
