Matt Gill happy with reaction of Under-23s

15 April 2018

Matt Gill was pleased his Under-23s bounced back from successive defeats with a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in Premier League 2.

Gill's side hadn't played for almost a month before they welcomed Wolves to Carrow Road on Sunday but they put in a well-rounded display to edge out their west Midlands opponents.

Speaking to the media post-match, the Under-23s head coach said: "There were some really pleasing things in the first-half.

"The lads hadn't had a competitive game for four weeks so to come out of the traps like we did and make a fast start was good.

"We played some good stuff early on and went 2-0 up. The second-half was always going to be slightly different. They were always going to have a go.

"We are slightly disappointed with the way we played in the second-half. It was a bit of a grind but at the end of the day, the win is always good.

"It was good to put to bed the two previous defeats."

Goals in the first-half from Tristan Abrahams and Marco Stiepermann saw the Canaries on their way to three points and Gill was delighted that his team capitalised on their best period of the game.

"Our all-round performance in the first 15 minutes was all I ask for," he continued. "We had forward momentum and were patient with the ball.

"That spell set us up for the whole game and I was really chuffed to start the game like that, given some of the sloppy starts we've had this season."
