Magilton: Norwich Deserved Win

Last updated : 07 December 2008 By Site Editor
"Norwich didn't afford us any time or space and closed us down particularly quickly." Magilton admitted after the final whistle.

"They started brighter than us although we defended very well first half and Richard Wright made some good saves and we started the second half a lot brighter.

"We probably had the best chance of the game and in tight games like this if you can get your noses in front it goes a long way in securing a victory but we didn't and they go up the other end and score.

"Norwich deserved their victory, their moment in the sun, and it is my first taste of defeat as a manager in a derby game and it doesn't taste nice.

"I knew we could play better and I told them we needed to get the ball moving and we did start the second half brightly but Norwich's intensity was very high and we at times didn't match that.

"We have to swallow that and move on. We have an opportunity to rectify this very quickly. We have two big homes games starting on Wednesday to right the wrongs."
