Managers Reaction

Crystal Palace assistant manager Osian Roberts: “It was a good day for us. Performance-wise and result-wise, it was really important for us today, but especially after the result on Sunday and then coming back to play at home. We made a good start to the game and we had good energy. The early goal sets us up nicely and the important thing is you build on that and don’t go flat. We managed to do that and it was an excellent first half for us.”

Norwich head coach Dean Smith: “The result and the scoreline hurts. I didn’t think it a 3-0 if I’m honest, but the manner of the goals we conceded was poor. We conceded a soft penalty. Ken held his hands up, it might not be given in other circumstances. Does he make contact? Yes, but once he plants his foot, he doesn’t do enough to send the lad over. But I can understand why it was given so I’ve got no complaints.”
