Norwich had looked the more purposeful and assured side and seemed destined to take a point until Forster sent a clearance straight to Beckford, who atoned for earlier misses by advancing and shooting past the on-loan keeper.

Leeds seized a 15th-minute lead when Bradley Johnson grabbed his sixth goal of the season, leaping at the far post to head home a corner from the right by Robert Snodgrass.

Home keeper Shane Higgs, recalled after injury, had struggled to complete a couple of saves from Darel Russell and Wes Hoolahan and was replaced by Casper Ankergren after only 17 minutes

The equaliser arrived in the 38th minute, Canaries captain Grant Holt pouncing on Simon Lappin's low cross from the right and escaping his marker to fire his 10th goal of the season, but Beckford had the final say.
