Gunn: We Shot Ourselves In The Foot

Norwich City boss Bryan Gunn criticised the defending for the second goal, saying his side 'shot themselves in the foot'.

After a dominant start from the Swans, we put ourselves in front thanks to a magnificent strike from Jason Scotland. Our lead didn't last long though as former Cardiff City striker Alan Lee headed home the equaliser.

5 minutes into the second half, we regained the lead as Scotland was fouled in the box and he stepped up to convert the penalty to increase his tally for the season to 23 goals.

Defeat for Norwich sees them drop into the bottom 3, 2 points adrift of Nottingham Forest who beat Bristol City 3-2.

Bryan Gunn said:

'We put in a spirited performance. We set ourselves up to stifle them and we did that for long periods.

'We shot ourselves in the foot just minutes after the break. It was bad defending. The ball came in too easily and he [Scotland] was too crafty. It's been the story of our season.

'We have to believe. We are back in the bottom three and have to get out of it. We now hope other teams fail and don't get maximum points.

'It's a concern we are in the bottom three after clawing ourselves out of it.

'We have to dig deep and find the resolve we've shown in the past.

'We are not down and out yet. Nobody has thrown the towel in here and we have to regroup now.'
