Grant: Owls Worthy Winners

Grant: Owls Worthy Winners

Norwich boss Peter Grant revealed it would have been a 'total injustice' had Wednesday not taken all three points from Saturday's clash at Carrow Road.

The Canaries could well have taken a share of the spoils from the encounter had referee Andy Woolmer stood by his decision to award the hosts a last minute penalty - but Grant told the official NCFC site it would have been a total injustice.

He said: 'It would have been a total injustice if Sheffield Wednesday had not won the game. I thought they passed it better, were a lot more organised then us, and fair play to them. People say they were lucky goals, but I thought they deserved the victory.'

'The referee looks as though he's made a mistake. But we made a lot of mistakes today so I have no problems. If we had of equalised it would have been an injustice to Sheffield Wednesday.'

And talking of the late injury to star striker Rbert Earnshaw: 'That shouldn't be an excuse. It wasn't because of Robert Earnshaw missing that we lost the game today. It was the performance which lost us the game.'

Owls defender Madjid Bougherra's 80th minute goal put the Owls on the way to victory before Deon Burton netted his first goal from open play to double the advantage and make the game look seemingly secure for the visitors.

But a late flurry allowed Dion Dublin to pull one back for the hosts with five minutes to go and only a late flag by the linesman alerted Andy Woolmer to withdraw his decision to award Grant's men a late penalty and a share of the points.

Well done, Wednesayites. You deserved no less. In fact, even our getting one back did not conceal the fact that you simply outclassed us on the day. Take heart; you managed to beat us, and we beat the Brummies. As for my suggestions that Norwich might be in the top six, come May, it might have been more heart than head. Again, congratulations for the game AND outsinging the home supporters. Norwich Editor.
