INTERVIEW: Ben Wilson Norwich City Reaction

The 'keeper impressed on his first league start...

29 November 2020

Ben Wilson was pleased with the Sky Blues’ efforts as they came back from behind to earn a point against the league leaders at Carrow Road.

Max Biamou scored a late leveller to tie up the game after Marko Vranic scored a first half penalty, under controversial circumstances.

The draw means the Sky Blues stretch their unbeaten run to three games in the Championship, picking up five points so far after the international break.

He said: “The result is a great result in the end.

“Take away the decision in the first half where I one hundred per cent got the ball and we were comfortable throughout the game.

“Sweet Caroline was on straight away, but I think when you look back at the game, we deserved so much more and a clean sheet would have been nice.”

The game against the Canaries was Ben Wilson’s first in the league for the Sky Blues since he joined the club in the summer of 2019.

The ‘keeper has had to bide his time and with the unfortunate injury for Marko Marosi ruling him out of action, Wilson is looking to take his chance and he certainly impressed with several saves in the game.

“It was nice to start and get my first appearance, we come away with a great point in the end and the lads are buzzing.

“There is no perfect save and you have just got to be there at the right time and luckily one hit me in the face as well as one in the chest.

“The first one, it fell into an open goal situation for them, so I got myself off the ground and got there as soon as I could.”

He also spoke on his close relationship with Marko who is currently side-lined for what looks to be until after the New Year and the 28-year-old decided to dedicate his performance to Marosi.

“Marko has been outstanding.

“We have a close bond and I want to dedicate that performance to him, he messaged me last night saying go and smash it and he said I deserve it, so I send my best wishes to him in his recovery.

City have decided to recruit in the goalkeeping department whilst Marko recovers, with the experience Lee Camp coming in, someone Wilson knows from his time in Wales with Cardiff City.

“I spent a bit of time with Lee Camp at Cardiff and he is great to have around.

“I have just got to do what I can, we get on really well and he is going to push me and I am going to push him, so let’s hope for a positive next few months.”
