Todd Cantwell: I thought we were a little bit unlucky with the disallowed goal

Todd Cantwell could not hide is disappointment after the final whistle against Leicester City as he felt Norwich City were denied a perfectly good equaliser in the match.

Having trailed 2-1 with 12 minutes to go Kenny McLean headed home a Milot Rashica corner but the goal was ruled out by referee Robert Jones for offside, with Cantwell the guilty party. However, he felt that decision was harsh as he was not interfering with play.

“I thought we were a little bit unlucky with the (disallowed) goal, if I am being honest,” he said. “I have not seen it back yet, but I am not interfering with play, I have not done anything, I have not stopped him, so I am confused by that. It definitely feels like we have been robbed of some points.

“It is disappointing. I must admit that I do feel very disappointed speaking to you now, especially knowing how close we were to getting points. They (Leicester) are very good team. They are right up there for the top four spaces, we know that. And if we can go toe-to-toe with teams like that then we should be in a good place but, ultimately, we have walked away with nothing.”

Norwich did put in a much-improved performance, following previous losses to Liverpool and Manchester City. It was recognised by the crowd inside Carrow Road who cheered the players off at the final whistle.

“I think anybody who was in here today would say that we were up to the challenge,” added Todd. “We went toe-to-toe with them completely and a couple of decisions were questionable and that is frustrating especially as a player. When you feeling like everything is going against you that is annoying but we have got to pick ourselves up. We have got a little break now and we will be looking to smash it when we come back.”
