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."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
