DAVID Wright admitted getting a torrid time from tormenter Darren Huckerby but got his own back by scoring the leveller.
The dogged defender was partially at fault for Dickson Etuhu's fifth-minute opener but made up for it with only his fourth career goal.
Wright said: “I don't score very often so it was good to score. I probably should score more often.
You may also want to watch:
“ I had two good chances when I was with Wigan against Sheffield United and Liverpool and didn't finish them so when they do come along it is a great feeling.
“To score it in a derby makes it extra special.

“Gary Roberts played a great ball into me and I tried to find Frannie but it was blocked and came back to me and I managed to put it in, so I guess I was lucky to an extent.”
To add an extra bit of spice, Wright's goal came against a club he once played for on loan in December 2005.
He said: “I came here and played five games. I enjoyed my time here and it held me in good stead when I went back to Wigan and was able to get straight back into the first team.”
He also knew what a danger Darren Huckerby can be and struggled at times against the tricky forward, which earned him a few harsh words from the manager.
Wright explained: “Darren is a good player and the way Norwich played with Robert Earnshaw up front using Huckerby covering between me and Alex Bruce made it difficult. They also had a left-winger too so I was isolated with Huckerby at times and even had two against one at times.
“Jim had a word but that is the way it goes.
“I was possibly in the wrong place for the goal because I dropped off to jump with Etuhu but you have to make these decisions.”
