INTERVIEW: Leo Ostigard Norwich City Reaction

The defender gave his thoughts after the final whistle...

10 January 2021

Leo Ostigard gave an honest reflection on the Sky Blues 2-0 defeat to Norwich in the FA Cup Third Round at Carrow Road.

City found themselves two goals down in the first ten minutes, despite creating good chances themselves moments before.

Ostigard believes that City should have dealt with both goals better and they could have capitalised on the chances they created.

He said: “We had decent chances and we need to score these against a good team, so after that we had a really bad ten minutes and we concede two easy goals, that is not good enough.

“We had problems on the side because there were three players there and we struggled to defend against that and there was one man on my outside and I had to try to let him in on my inside and I think they are a little bit lucky in the box there, it was too easy to concede that goal.

“The second goal has deflected off my foot but we played against a good team and they scored these chances.”

He also has praised new signing Matty James who arrived on Wednesday and has straight away made a positive impact on the training ground.

He also touched on the impact of skipper Liam Kelly who is recovering from an injury with Ostigard praising his contribution during their unbeaten run.

He said: “Matty has been very good in training and he is a quality player and you can see he has lots of experience and is a really good player.

“He will be really important for us in the second half of the season so I only have good things to say about him.

“Kelly was important for us when we had our eight games unbeaten, he was important so he is a smart player and we get an experienced player.”

Ostigard spoke about how there are plenty of positives in the way the Sky Blues approached the game and emphasised on the importance of being clinical.

He said: “We just try to play good football and we know that we can create chances against the best team in the league so that is our good point to take; as I said we need to score goals, it is good we can create chances but the ball needs to go in the net.”
