Norwich City Under-23’s defender Jonathan Tomkinson spoke highly of his side’s never-say-die attitude following Monday’s 3-2 defeat at West Brom.
The Canaries had been 3-0 down, but a late brace from Tom Dickson-Peters hinted at a potential comeback.
“It’s a bit frustrating because we controlled most of the game as we set out to,” Tomkinson said. “The last few games have had periods where we haven’t been as composed on the ball as we’d like to be and that’s what’s cost us.
“It’s something we have to learn from and we’ll be better for it.
“The first half was a good example of how organised we can be defensively and the result shows it, so we’re very proud of that and have to keep that consistency throughout the 90 minutes.
“We’re resilient and don’t give up. 3-0 down, we brought it back to 3-2 and were pushing for that equaliser. In a crowded box, we still found a way through.
“We’ve had a few younger lads moving up and it’s been a big challenge for them but they’ll take these games in their stride and learn from them.
“We’ll take some time to switch off and be ready to go again in pre-season.
“It means a lot to me to be the captain of this team, to wear that armband and be seen as the leader.”
