Daniel Farke frustrated at Bolton stalemate

24 February 2018

Daniel Farke cut a frustrated figure after seeing his Norwich City side held to a 0-0 draw by Bolton in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday afternoon.

The Canaries completely dictated proceedings without finding a way through, their best chances coming during a first half which saw James Maddison strike the post and Moritz Leitner miss a one-on-one.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the game, Farke said: "To be there after this game, without scoring, is frustrating and disappointing.

"We were not able to score, which is unbelievable as we've not had a game this season where we've created so many 100 per cent chances.

"The performance was pretty good in general, but in football it's about scoring. We didn't concede but weren't able to score from our unbelievable dominance.

"Although it was a good performance, it's a very disappointing result. It's not what we wanted."

City switched system for the game, lining up in a 4-1-4-1 as Timm Klose's enforced absence through injury was offset by the inclusion of full debutant Onel Hernandez.

"Today was a day, where without Timm, we felt we could bring another offensive player onto the pitch," the Head Coach explained.

"In general terms, it was perhaps our best home game of the season. In some home games we have not been able to create chances but today I'm not happy because I wanted to win.

"We have one topic, to score more goals. That can determine games."
