Neil promises ‘more to come’ from Norwich

Alex Neil was ‘thoroughly impressed’ by Norwich’s victory over Bournemouth, but promised the Canaries will continue to improve.

Goals from Cameron Jerome, Wes Hoolahan and Matt Jarvis crowned a second victory of the season for the newly-promoted side, who were rarely tested by their visitors.

Speaking to Norwich City TV, Neil was full of praise for his side, and hailed the performances of wide men Nathan Redmond and Matt Jarvis in particular.

“I thought it was a thoroughly impressive 90 minutes if I’m honest. I thought we were the better side.

“We controlled the ball more and throughout the whole match we created more opportunities and limited them to very little.

“I really did think it was an all-round performance. When you get that first goal it sets you on your way at this level.

“It gives us a different dimension when we’ve got him on the left side and Nathan (Redmond) on the other side.

“They are two lads who can take the ball, drift with it and take it up the pitch. They’re both creative players as well, and they chip in with goals.

“I thought Matt, for his first game here, performed really well and got himself on the scoresheet which is great.”


Steve Cook’s late consolation for the Cherries denied Norwich a first clean sheet of the season, but Neil was reluctant to criticise his defence for a brief lapse in concentration.

“I’m more disappointed for them, because I felt with how well they defended in the game and how they limited Bournemouth to very little, they deserved it.

“We just switched off, which was frustrating for them but there will be other opportunities to keep clean sheets. The most important thing was the win.

“We’ve got seven points on the board but we want to improve on that. We’ve started reasonably well but we’ve got more to come.”
