Daniel Farke: We missed so many chances to win

10 April 2018

Daniel Farke was left ruing missed chances despite his Norwich City side fighting back from a goal down to draw 1-1 with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

City hit the post twice in a game full of goalscoring opportunities but left it late to equalise through Ivo Pinto after George Honeyman had opened the scoring for the hosts.

Speaking post-match, Farke said: “It was a crazy game in the first-half and the second-half. During the game, I was asking myself how many chances do we need in an away game?”

“I think today was a day where we had about ten 100% chances. On a normal day, James Maddison scores four or five times and on a really good day, he scores six or seven times.

“For me, it was unbelievable that we missed so many chances. It is like it is. We conceded a goal out of a lucky strike that came off the inside of the post and the offensive player was able to be there and score.

“At least I’m happy that we showed a good reaction and a good mentality and were again there with a late equaliser.

“It’s a sign that we are in a good fitness condition and also there with a good mentality but normally with these chances it must be a win today.

Despite the disappointment of not earning all three points, Farke was pleased with his players desire to keep going and eventually score another late goal.

“It’s a sign of how we work as a group. We have many young lads and it’s quite normal that they don’t play on this consistency.

“Sometimes they are a little bit nervous and today we were too nervous in front of the goal and missed so many chances.

“But it’s also a sign of my group that we have this mentality. We’ve been here with so many late goals and so many late equalisers.

“We’re still number one in the last 15 minutes of games this season.”
