Gareth Ainsworth

"We let a couple of sloppy goals in before half time and that's ultimately cost us,"

"You can't go giving yourself mountains to climb like that. There were some good players out there and you could see the difference in class at some stages.

"But I thought heart-wise and endeavour we matched them, and we almost got that equaliser at the end.

"I'm always proud of my boys; they never give me anything less than what they've got and it's just that little bit of quality and maybe a bit of questionable defending in the last minutes of the first half were costly things.

"We know Norwich like to take chances going forward that they do leave themselves open at the back, and maybe the goals didn't come the way I thought they would, but we did put a lot of pressure on them in the second half."
