Simeon Jackson made the most out his 32-plus minutes on the pitch.

Jackson, who has struggled to get onto the pitch for League Championship and promotion candidates Norwich City, scored a 69th minute equalizer Tuesday as Norwich City drew Watford 2-2. He pounced on a ball headed over to him by teammate Grant Holt and made no mistake from just a few yards out.

Jackson came on as a sub in the 58th minute.

Jackson, from Mississauga, was Canada’s 2009 Player of the Year and made the move to Norwich before the 2010-11 season. But, after a promising start, he’s been forced to the sidelines while his club makes a push for promotion.

Before Canada’s friendly with Peru last September, Jackson admitted he felt the pressure of moving up from Gillingham to Norwich. There was the weight of expectation.

“There is pressure, especially when a club spends big money on you in this economic climate,” he said.

But, it wasn’t all good news for Norwich. The Canaries entered action today in second place in the Championship. But with their draw and Cardiff winning on Tuesday, the Canaries now fall to third with five matches left to play. Norwich trails Cardiff by one point for the automatic promotion slot.
