Hughton left to lament costly mistakes

1 February 2014 20:03

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton was left frustrated by the manner of his side's 2-1 Premier League defeat at Cardiff City on Saturday.

Hughton's men made a bright start and took the lead as early as the fifth minute through Robert Snodgrass, only to concede two goals in as many minutes at the start of the second half to Craig Bellamy and Kenwyne Jones.

Defeat leaves Norwich just two points above of the bottom three and Hughton was disappointed with how his players surrendered possession in their own half in the build-up to Bellamy's equaliser.

"We conceded two very poor goals," he said.

"We've made mistakes for the goals, they changed the whole atmosphere in the stadium. It's a feeling of frustration all over.

"Sometimes you have to hold your hand up because you've not been the better side or you've not deserved to win so the massive frustration is it's a game we didn't deserve to lose."

Despite the defeat, Hughton was pleased with the way his side reacted to going behind, as only an inspired display from Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall, along with the help of the woodwork and a goalline clearance from Bellamy, prevented them from returning to Norfolk with something to show for their efforts.

"We responded very well," he said.

"Their goalkeeper, as he did at Carrow Road, made some super saves, so I certainly can't fault the effort and our determination to try and get goals.

"There are some positives on levels of performance but it's frustrating because it's a game we should never have lost."
