Angus Gunn: We were very unlucky

16 December 2017

Angus Gunn felt Norwich City were unlucky not to take anything from their clash with Leeds United on Saturday.

City were edged out 1-0 at Elland Road after Pontus Jansson’s first-half header but the visitors had numerous chances to get at least a point from the game.

Speaking post-match, the Canaries number one felt he and his teammates were unfortunate to come away empty-handed.

“Looking back on the game, we played very well,” said Gunn. “We got out of the blocks very quickly and were on the front foot.

“When you come to Elland Road, you expect pressure which they put on a bit at the end of the first half. I think we stood up to most of it well. The goal was at a bad time for us.

“It set us back a little bit but in the second half, we came out all guns blazing again and we just couldn’t find that quality pass or end product.

City have conceded a number of goals from set-pieces in recent matches, including Jansson’s header which proved decisive on Saturday, and Gunn says they'll work hard to rectify their defensive issue.

“It has happened a few times this season already,” he added. Set-pieces are a massive part of the Championship. The last few losses we’ve had have come from set-pieces.

“It’s disappointing but we need to get back on the training pitch and work hard on it and come back out on Friday fighting again.”
