on the performance…
I am very pleased. We had a little change of our system, which I think gave the players a new lease of life. We controlled the game, passed it really well and created as many chances as we have done for a long time.

on Chuba Akpom's goal…
It was [a bit of a gift] but you have to be there to put them under pressure. For me it was a good goal, because Chuba has closed down the centre half, then closed down the goalkeeper and has got his rewards.

on the Norwich equaliser…
I was disappointed because we gave the ball away in a bad area and it was bad decision making. But when you pass the ball, you sometimes make bad decisions. It is something I will talk to them about, but it's something you have to live with as well.

on Thomas Eisfeld's display…
He played in an area of the pitch where he can hurt teams, and he did here. But there were a lot of good performances across the whole team. Thomas was very good, with the quality of his goals and his work-rate, which was fantastic. He is a very composed finisher and has great technique.

on the end to the match…
I was never really too worried. Most of Norwich's shots were from distance, and their best attacks seemed to come when we turned the ball over in the area near the halfway line and they had the chance to counter. We knew that might happen, but that is something you have to live with when you pass the ball.

on Martin Angha's injury…
He is OK, it was a collision as much as anything. It was his knee, as the two players slid in the studs have probably caught his knee. But it seems like more of a collision than a twist.

on a satisfactory night…
It was very encouraging, because when you look at our side it was very young. There was Iggy [Miquel], but the rest of them were pretty much of the NextGen age group. It is always difficult to come to Carrow Road and get a result, but we have done it and I'm pleased.
