Norwood unhappy with goals conceded at Wigan

Oliver Norwood opened his seasonal goal account at Wigan’s DW Stadium this afternoon – but was adamant it didn’t matter after a 2-1 defeat.

“The most important thing is obviously winning and you’d take anybody else scoring the goals as long as you win. It’s always about the team and it always will be,” Ollie told

Norwood’s goal got Town back on level terms going into the interval after Leon Barnett’s opener, but an error in possession from Peter Clarke gave Nick Powell the opportunity to score what proved to be the winner. 

Oliver continued: “We’re disappointed because we’ve gifted them the game. We’ve given two goals away again today – just like we did last week – and we need to stop giving teams goals.

“It was desperation time as we were trying to get back in the game at the end and the ‘keeper has made a good save from me. We were trying hard to get the result that we thought we were worthy of, but once again we’ve all disappointed to give those two goals away again. We need to cut that out.”

Norwood made his 50th start for the Terriers after a spell out of the side, but explained that he understands the need for patience after the team’s recent performances. 

“I’m desperate to play and desperate to do well when I get my chance. Hopefully I’ve done ok today and I stay in the team for next week, but we have a good squad and we all have to be patient at times. 

“Players have played well when they’ve come in, so you have to be patient and take your chance when it comes. You have to try and make it impossible for the Manager to leave you out.”
