We missed our chance - Waddock

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.
