Hughton feels red was correct

Norwich boss Chris Hughton believes the decision to send Wes Brown off in his side's 0-0 draw at Sunderland was correct, insisting the tackle was "reckless".

Chris Hughton: Pleased with draw at Sunderland

The visitors kept their second away clean sheet in succession, a task that was helped thanks to the late dismissal of the former England defender, a decision that Hughton feels was fully justified.

"I'm not sure how much contact was made," he told Sky Sports.

"But from where I was it looked to be a correct decision, and was certainly reckless."

The result means the Canaries have been beaten just once in their last five league matches, a record that pleases Hughton, even if he feels his side may have taken more from the Stadium of Light.

He added: "In general when you are away from home, against a good side buoyed by recent results, a draw is a good result.

"I thought we were the side most likely to score on the break, but overall a draw was a fair result.

"We had clearer chances, and if we showed more quality in the final third we could have come away with three points."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
