Norwich: Neil left disappointed againNorwich: Neil left disappointed again

Midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson gave the Swans all three points yesterday with a simple finish from inside the area.

The Canaries have failed to win in their last 10 matches, with Neil’s side losing nine of them. That run has seen them drop into the relegation zone and Neil’s men are now 18th in the Premier League.

Speaking after the match, Neil admitted that his team missed another opportunity to gain some ground on their relegation rivals.

He told Sky Sports: “It’s felt that way for the last few matches. I’m not going to stand here and make excuses.

“We didn’t take the opportunities we had and unfortunately Swansea manager to go and score a goal. I was really disappointed [with the goal]. I felt up until that point Swansea hadn’t really created anything.

“It was a straight match-up all over the pitch and you could see from both sets of players how hard they worked and how much it meant to them. But once again we find ourselves on the wrong end of the result.”
