INTERVIEW: Jamie Allen reflects on Norwich City defeat

The midfielder gave his immediate reaction after the final whistle...

Jamie Allen believes City were worthy of something from Carrow Road, as they fell to defeat against Norwich City.

The Sky Blues took the lead through Callum O’Hare, but two goals for the Canaries and a red card for Liam Kitching changed the game.

Speaking after the final whistle, the midfielder looked on missed chances, which could have given the Sky Blues a share or all three points.

Not taking chances to extend the lead…

“We had two good chances in the second half to put the game away. We weren’t at our best today, but we were still in the game, when we went 1-0 up, I felt we could have got a second and gone on and won it.”

 

The second half performance…

“We needed to up it, we weren’t playing at our normal self, and we pushed on in the second half and it was a brilliant finish from Callum, and we had a chance to make it 2-0 before they scored.

“It was a great save to deny Haji, I don’t know how he got a touch on it, and we were unlucky not to get that second.”

 

Norwich’s leveller…

“It bounced around in the box and it’s just fell to him, and he’s just hit, but looking back we should have got the first and second contact and cleared it.

“We had a couple of spells after that, we had the chance through Kasey which was great play and I think if he scores that then it’s a different game.”

 

Disappointed not to get anything…

“We were in the game for most of it and we had the chances to nick and if not take a draw.”

 

Liam Kitching’s red card…

“We can’t say much about it, he’s got behind us and Kitch has tried to take the ball and he’s just missed it.

“It gave us a hill to climb with ten minutes to go, but like I said we had a chance to go 2-1 up.”

 

Unbeaten run coming to an end…

“All the lads have been brilliant over the last 12 games, and we did really well to do that and hopefully we have a game coming up on Tuesday and we can bounce back there and go on a run in the cup and the pick-up in the league on the weekend.”

 

Looking to get back to winning ways…

“There’s 16 games left and a lot to be played, anything can happen, we just need to focus on ourselves and get on a good run and get back into the top six.”
