Mick bemoans manner of Norwich winner

Mick McCarthy was disappointed with the manner of Norwich’s winner and said it changed the course of the game. 

Lewis Grabban headed in from close range midway through the first-half following in-decision in the Town box in what proved to be the only goal of the game. 

Daryl Murphy headed Blues’ best chance wide early in the second-half while Grabban could have added to his goal on a couple of occasions. 

“The game wasn’t going anywhere until we conceded a soft goal from a corner,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“Someone shouted ‘keeper’s’. I don’t know who it was but it wasn’t Gerks. No one else should be shouting it. Skusey was marking Grabban. It was a disappointing goal from our end.

“That changed the course of the game. They were better after the goal and for 10 minutes, we were all over the place. 

“We were better in the second-half and our best bit of football was when Murph had that chance with the header. He said he should have scored. 

“That’s the fine margins in football though. If that had gone in, it changes the game again. 

“Norwich are a good side, they have just come down from the Premier League and have got some very good players. There is no disgrace in losing to them, it’s just it hurts more to lose your nearest and not so dearest!”
