Savvy summarises Chris Hughton’s verdict on the Wigan defeat…

Chris Hughton has been talking to the official site following the lacklustre defeat to Wigan, and talking about the problems we face in front of goal.

“It`s about clinical moments, and they had the one in the game that got them the goal,”

“I thought we were good in that first-half period – we broke well, and probably away from home, that`s as much as we`ve got into the final third.

“It`s two things when you`re away from home though – if it`s a close game you`ve got to make sure you keep that clean sheet, or you`ve got to have that little bit of quality that gets you that goal.

“We didn`t have that today – it`s something that we were guilty of and something we`ll have to look at but it was a never a game that I felt we were going to lose.”

On the barren goal-scoring run, he added: “Statistics don`t lie but our general play has been good enough, as anybody that was here today will have seen.

“To win games, though, you`ve got to score goals and we`re finding that a little more difficult at the moment.”

“We`ve got seven games left, and four of them are at home,” he said.

“For clubs like ourselves, it`s always going to be about your home form. We need to make sure that we pull all the good things out of that game today and take advantage of the fact that we`re at Carrow Road.

“The only way our situation can change is by getting the points that we need and the wins that we need. That starts with the next game against Swansea.

“You have to be confident that you`ve got enough in the squad to get the points that are needed. Absolutely we have, but we have to show it. Today`s a disappointing day, but we need to turn it into a good day next week.”
