Winger nets maiden City goal in Hammers draw
ROBBIE Brady spoke of mixed emotions after scoring his first Norwich City goal in the 2-2 draw at West Ham United on Saturday.
The 23-year-old capitalised on a Mark Noble error to put the visitors in front early on, before Diafra Sakho levelled in a lively first half.
Nathan Redmond’s 83rd minute strike had seemed set to give Alex Neil’s men victory, only for Cheikhou Kouyate’s injury-time goal to see them restricted to a point.
Giving his reaction to the Barclays Premier League contest, Brady told Norwich City TV: “It was another good away performance from us.
“At the end of the day it’s a good point away from home but we’re disappointed to concede in the last minute. It keeps our good run going but it’s frustrating at the same time.
“I was obviously very happy to score. When the ball was played across I saw the defender wasn’t getting there, and managed to get onto it and put it away.
“There were three points to be had today and we’ve come away with one. It’s not the worst thing in the world but we should be looking to hold them off.”
Despite the late set-back, the Republic of Ireland international feels the Canaries are progressing well as they adapt to the top-flight.
City have now taken nine points from their opening seven games, and Brady added: "We’ve been good, and have been at it since day one.
"It’s obviously good to take a point from places like this and Anfield. Everybody knows your away form has to be good in this league.
“Hopefully we can keep picking up results to get ourselves safe. The lads were excellent today so if we can iron out the mistakes we’ll be fine."
