Football Results: Norwich City 2-1 Huddersfield Town

Norwich won their first game of the season as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Josh Seargent opened the scoring in the sixth minute before Danel Sinani doubled their advantage in the 16th minute. Tom Lees made the job at hand harder for the visitors as he was sent off in the 48th minute although they did pull a goal back in the 81st minute through Pat Jones.

Managers Reaction 

Norwich’s Dean Smith: “We got the win, that’s the most important thing, but I was very happy with the performance as well and the work-rate too. To be honest that’s the way we played in our two previous matches (a 1-1 draw with Wigan and a 2-1 defeat at Hull) but this time we have taken a couple of our chances early on and I am delighted for the lads. To be honest we should have scored a lot more and I would have preferred it if Josh had run through and scored rather than being pulled back for the red card. Once they went down to 10 men it changed the game and they sat back and waited for a break. They got a goal out of the blue but we saw it out and got what we deserved in the end.”

Huddersfield’s Danny Schofield: “We always knew it was going to be tough coming here. They may have started the day bottom of the table but they are a quality side and I fully expect them to be challenging for promotion at the end of the season. “It was a very tough start for us and he found ourselves 2-0 down after 15 or 16 minutes. But after that I thought we acquitted ourselves really well and I was proud of the efforts of all the players, especially after going down to 10 men.”
