Norwich put on a brilliant performance as they produced one of the narrow football scores of the weekend in the FA Cup. In a game of few chances, Kenny McLean scored a header just before half-time for the only goal of the game. Wolves came out from the break but could not find the back of the net with Daniel Podence hitting the post in the second half.
Norwich manager Dean Smith: “I always said I thought we were harshly judged in the Christmas period and now we are starting to get a better squad together. The players were hurt by it and wanted to prove people wrong and they are doing that at the moment. I think it is hard enough for any team that is newly promoted to win football games in the league. When we had nine players missing, it makes it nigh-on impossible but we have come through that period now and got some players back. We got a lot of negativity from outside and spoke ourselves about creating a siege mentality and being strong.”
Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “We didn’t play with the same dynamic, especially in the first half. In the second half, we played and came at the game from a different position. “I was upset at half-time, especially with the way we conceded that goal, 46 minutes. Their player had his back to goal and we give them a chance to score a goal.”
