GRAEME JONES REFLECTS ON THE DEFEAT TO NORWICH

27 July 2019

Town boss Graeme Jones believes today’s defeat to Norwich City was a “wakeup call for everybody” after his side were defeated 5-1 at Kenilworth Road.

The visitors were 3-0 up before Dan Potts pulled one back with 35 minutes gone, with Daniel Farke’s side then grabbing another two to secure the result.

Jones said: “It was a big lesson, but I think I would rather it happen today then next Friday. But I know the Premier League and the Championship and I think it’s a wakeup call for everybody.

“We had a game against Maritimo on Wednesday in 30-degrees, I think it took a lot out of the boys, I didn’t see the spark there that has been in previous games and we flew back yesterday. So that definitely had an impact, I will have a look at the physical stats and that will confirm my subject of opinion.

“I think you have to give Norwich credit, they finished 24 places above us last season. I know from my own personal encounters with them that they’re a very capable team both tactically and in particular physically – they were very, very strong individually. We will go away and we will chop it up, look back at it and we have to learn from it – that’s the step-up we need to get right, a sobering affect. But we need to get it right for Friday night, not today.”
