Reaction | Rob Edwards on Norwich win!

Manager Rob Edwards said he was ‘incredibly proud’ of his players they secured three points with a late winner against Norwich City at Kenilworth Road.


The Boxing Day spectacle had everything and after Allan Campbell’s impressive opener was cancelled out by Teemu Pukki, Gabe Osho was dismissed for a second yellow card.

Not deterred by going down to ten men, Cauley Woodrow came off the bench to score a superb winner in dramatic fashion in front of the Sky cameras and adoring home supporters.

Releasing his emotions after the game, Edwards said: “It was a big game for us, it’s the first time we were in front of our home supporters, it’s Norwich City, it’s Boxing Day at night. We lost the first game so it was important to get off to a good start so there was a lot of emotion that came out at the end, just incredibly proud of the players.

“I thought we were really good, we didn’t get everything right but we’re up against a really good team and to find a way to win with ten men was incredible. I’m really pleased for Cauley and I’m delighted for the group as a whole.”

The boss, who celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday, was jubilant and showed his emotions in front of the Kenilworth Road end after the match.

“I think that is what football can do for us!” Edwards smiled. “Sport, team sport, we all love our football. We’re up against a big team, 1-1, ten men, late on, I was even thinking we would take the point but credit to the lads because it was our players who were more on the front foot.

“Hopefully it builds a real connection between us and the supporters as well because I will say it again, they are the most important people at the club and we want to get up and running with them and hopefully they realise we’re so proud to be here and we want to do really well for this football club.”
