Midfielder has sights set on Huddersfield after Rams draw

ALEX Tettey expressed a sense of frustration after Norwich City were held to a 1-1 draw by Derby County at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The home side were the better team for much of the contest, but were restricted to a solitary point after the Rams cancelled out Cameron Jerome's first half opener.

The result sees the Canaries remain firmly in contention for automatic promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, and after the game Tettey told Norwich City TV: "We are really disappointed, but there's still a lot to play for.

"I don't know the statistics, but I thought we had a lot of chances to win the game. We feel disappointed we didn't take them because it wasn't the best game playing-wise and we had more clear chances to score than they did.

"We are a team, and we all make mistakes. We will forget about this now as we have a game on Tuesday. It's all in the past, and we're looking forward."

The Norwegian midfielder was at the heart of a hard-fought contest, and took a blow to the head in the second period following a collision with Derby debutant Jamie Hanson.

Tettey expected such an intense affair however, commenting: "If you look at the game it was more tactical; they locked horns with us in the midfield.

"There wasn't much space to get the ball because you have a man following you all the time, and you're following them all the game too. That's just how it is in the Championship, and on top of that there was a lot of battling.

"We have nine games, and hopefully we can win them because we are doing well."
