Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was left to regret the 60-second spell that cost his team so dearly against the Canaries. Matt Phillips watched his shot rebound off the post into the arms of City goalkeeper Fraser Forster after 76 minutes, then the visitors went straight up the other end to score the decisive goal through Korey Smith.

Wycombe boss Gary Waddock was left to regret the 60-second spell that cost his team so dearly against the Canaries.

Matt Phillips watched his shot rebound off the post into the arms of City goalkeeper Fraser Forster after 76 minutes, then the visitors went straight up the other end to score the decisive goal through Korey Smith.

“Things are not going our way at the moment,” said Waddock. “Norwich are a good side but we didn't take our chance when it came. Matty Phillips has hit the post and if that goes into the back of the net then it is a different game.

“If you are top of the league that shot just hits the post and rolls into the back of the net. And then Norwich, with their ability and quality, went up the other end and scored.

“It was a sloppy goal to concede and it is a difficult one to take. It was a lack of concentration that caught us out in the end.”

The Blues boss had demanded a reaction from his side after two Christmas defeats - a 4-0 hammering at Yeovil and a 5-2 home thrashing by Brighton.

“There had to be an improvement after our last two games and credit to the players because they responded,” said Waddock.

“Everybody is very disappointed not to get anything out of the game but we have no choice but to roll up our sleeves a little bit more.

“There were players out there who showed the commitment to get us out of the situation we are in. The players are devastated they got nothing from it because they worked really hard.

“We had limited opportunities but they were good chances for us. But they could say they had a lot of chances and hit the crossbar.”
