Dutch winger off the mark for the Canaries

YANIC Wildschut spoke of mixed emotions after netting his first Norwich City goal in Tuesday night's Sky Bet Championship draw at Bristol City.

The Dutch winger's first half strike had given the Canaries the lead, with the score remaining at 1-0 until 12 minutes from time when Bailey Wright struck from close-range to ensure a share of the spoils.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the game, Wildschut said: "I needed some time to adapt to a different style so didn't really show what I had the first couple of games.

"I still feel I can do better but at least I got a goal, which was important for the team. We're disappointed we didn't get the win.

"In the first half we had some good chances and should have scored more goals. With a bit of luck we should have stopped the goal but we blame ourselves for not scoring more.

"It was a real Championship game and you have to do the hard work. We have to go onto Saturday now which is a big game for us, so hopefully we can win."

Reflecting more widely on the game, the former Wigan Athletic player added: "We showed some good football in the first half, then the second half was harder.

"We always try our best. Everyone wants to play for the team and for the club; since I've been here the vibe in the dressing room has been really good.

"Last week was a blow but everyone has been training hard since. A point isn't good enough because we should have won but we go again on Saturday."
