Oliver Skipp: We dominated without being clinical enough

2 February 2021

Norwich City midfielder Oliver Skipp felt the Canaries were on top for parts of Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Millwall, but lacked the ruthless edge required to take all three points.

“We’re disappointed with the result,” he said. “This team goes into every game trying to get the three points. For large parts of the game, we dominated without being clinical enough, myself included.

“We had chances where we needed to be more convinced and ruthless in the final third. That’s how I’d sum up the game.

“Look through the team and I had a chance on the edge of the box where maybe I could have done better.

“As a team, just to be more ruthless and take those opportunities is what we needed. You’re not always going to have 1,000 chances in a game so make sure that you’re testing the ‘keeper at all times.

“Especially in the last 15 minutes, perhaps they started coming into the game and had some penalty shouts, but it’s always nice to get a clean sheet, but we go into every game wanting to win and that was our attitude going into the game tonight.

“We’re disappointed but will look forward to the next game in three days' time and be ready for that.”

There’s little time to dwell on the result, with Swansea away on Friday night Norwich’s next test at the top of the Championship.

“Millwall away is a tough place to come but inside we feel disappointed and perhaps this is one that got away.

“We’ll dust ourselves down, it’s not the end of the world and we’re still top of the league so we can’t be too down on ourselves.

“It’s a massive game on Friday so we’ll just recover, think about that and make sure we can put it right on Friday in a big game.”
