Angus Gunn looks forward after Wolves defeat

31 October 2017

Angus Gunn was keen to look ahead to the weekend after City’s 2-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Carrow Road.

City were beaten by a goal in each half to the west Midlands side on Tuesday night and Gunn admitted the new Sky Bet Championship table toppers were a quality side.

Speaking post-match, he said: “Certainly quality-wise, they have some unbelievable players and great team spirit and you could see they had a good way of playing as well.

“We’re disappointed with the goals we conceded. We think we could have broken them down and nicked a goal or two.

“They were good on the counter but I felt we defended very well and got some good blocks in. It was just those set-pieces that opened us up. The first one was a good ball into the near post and the second was a bit sloppy from us not clearing it. I think it’s just one of those unlucky things.

“I don’t think we’ll look too deep into it. Hopefully we can go into the Bolton game and rectify those mistakes and keep a clean sheet.

Next up for the Canaries is a visit to Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and Gunn is hoping City can continue their good away form at the Macron Stadium.

“You go through periods where you concede goals and go through periods when you don’t,” he continued. “Unfortunately in the past few games we’ve conceded a few goals but hopefully we can get back on our away run and go and get some points because we need them now.

“We’re creating the chances which is a positive thing. But away from home it’s different because teams come at us more and we’ve got more space to play in. We’ve got to start converting our chances into goals. When we do that, we’ll be a dangerous team in this division.

“We’re not in a bad position. We’ve got a lot of points on the board. It’s the Championship – we have lots of games in a short space of time. If we win at Bolton, we’ll be back up near the play-off places so you can’t say we’re not in a good position.”
