Buendia and Stiepermann react to Hull victory

13 March 2019

Emi Buendia and Marco Stiepermann agreed Norwich City's 3-2 victory over Hull City on Wednesday night should have been more comfortable.

In a dominant display, City scored three times but conceded late in each half to ensure a nervy evening at Carrow Road.

Despite the win, the goalscoring duo admitted they should have scored more than the three on the evening.

Buendia, who scored twice, said: "Maybe, we should have scored more goals, but it was good and a big win in the end.

"I am really happy because I scored again, two goals. Another win and we played very well."

Stiepermann, who got the ball rolling with a superb opener, added: "We’re really happy about tonight but it was really unnecessary to have the situation today because it was a really good performance from all of us.

"But there are small things that can decide a game and it was unnecessary to concede two goals. At the end it was an exciting game!"

The pick of the goals was Buendia's second and City's third - an exquisite one-two between Buendia and Teemu Pukki allowed the Argentinian to roll the ball under Hull 'keeper David Marshall on the hour mark.

The post-match comments were all about the initial flick from Buendia: "I tried and it was fantastic with Teemu. It was a very good assist from him and I scored.

Stiepermann said: "I bet I won't try this. It looked so easy when he was doing that and it was fantastic for everyone to see."

Looking forward, the pair said City should relish the challenges ahead, with a trip to Rotherham coming up first on Saturday.

"I think we always just look from game to game," said Stiepermann.

"We’ve won the last five games now and that’s fantastic. Rotherham is waiting and that will be a really tough game and then we have two weeks of the international break to train and then Boro is waiting.

"But now, we just focus on Rotherham."

Buendia added: "There is no pressure. We have to enjoy this situation. It’s really good for us and important to enjoy."
