Defender reflects on Hornets loss

ANDRE Wisdom says Norwich City didn't match the standards required as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Watford on Saturday.

The Canaries went behind to Troy Deeney's penalty in the first half, before Odion Ighalo secured victory for the Hornets late on.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the Barclays Premier League contest, Wisdom said: "We weren't good enough, to say the least.

"We applied a bit of pressure in the second half looking for an equaliser. They've got the second goal, and we've lost the match.

"It's always hard to come back from a goal down, no matter who you're playing against."

City's cause at Vicarage Road was not made easier by strong winds throughout the contest, which had a visible effect on the game.

Wisdom refused to blame such factors however, and added: "We can't use the conditions as an excuse because it was the same for both teams.

You have to try and adapt but they did that better than we did. Collectively we weren't good enough, simple as that.

"We have a lot to look at from this game. We'll analyse where we went wrong and work on it during the week to try and improve."
