ANALYSIS: Watch Michael Bailey’s video verdict as Norwich City claim Brentford point
Norwich City correspondent Michael Bailey delivers his video verdict and analysis, as the Canaries dig in for a 2019-opening point at Brentford.
City were behind to Julian Jeanvier’s first-half header and struggled to impose themselves, needing to big saves from Tim Krul to keep them in their first fixture of the new year.
Injuries to Marco Stiepermann and Alex Tettey didn’t help the Canaries’ cause either.
However, a late header from Timm Klose earned City what could yet prove a very useful point.
The Canaries continue their 2019 start with the traditional distraction of an FA Cup third round tie at home to League One title contenders Portsmouth on Saturday (5.30pm), before things get trickier in the Championship.
City will head to automatic promotion rivals West Bromwich Albion the following Saturday, before hosting Birmingham and then Sheffield United (FA Cup dependent) in following weekends.
