Managers Reaction

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe: “It wasn’t the ideal start to the game, that’s for sure. That was a really difficult moment so early in the match, to know we were reduced to 10 men was tough.” he added. “But I thought the players responded magnificently. They gave it everything, I can’t fault them for the effort and commitment they’ve given. I’m hugely disappointed we couldn’t get over the line and win the game, but I think we saw really positive signs in terms of defensive resilience and collective spirit.”

Norwich manager Dean Smith: “I’m frustrated and disappointed because it’s probably the worst out of the three performances we’ve had. The game plan changes for both teams in the 10th minute when Ciaran Clark gets sent off.”
