We must take our chances - Brownhill

Josh Brownhill says City rued not taking their chances after slipping to a 1-0 home defeat against Norwich City.

City's attacking display counted for nothing as the away side converted one of their three shots on target.

Brownhill possessed the Robins' best chances but he was unlucky as both the goalkeeper and upright denied him in the second half.

The midfielder told BCTV: "We know we can create more chances than we have done all season and that's what it was tonight. We didn't create enough, we didn't take our chances when they came.

"I really don't know [how I didn't score at the end]. In that situation you get a split second to know where you are going to put it. There was somebody on the post and I thought I would put it in between them.

"The keeper got across and saved it. If it came back I would have put it in the roof of the net, maybe somewhere else but unfortunately the keeper saved it and we didn't get that bit of luck today.

WHAT HE SAID

"We didn't create enough, we didn't take our chances when they came."

On his effort which struck the bar, he added: ""The way it set out for me I saw a big chance to get a goal. I'll watch it back and see what else I could have done with it.

"The corner before that, Walshy (Liam Walsh) said he was going to play the ball towards me and he did. It was a good ball and it set up for me. I thought I would try and go for the top corner but unfortunately it hit the bar instead.

"I think Walshy has settled in really quickly. Playing against Manchester City helped him a lot and he's a great player. Ryan Kent is too but he;'s only been here a couple of days so it will a few days to get more bedded in with the team and I am sure he will."

THOUGHTS ON DERBY COUNTY

"It will be a massive game. They are in form and we go there to win the game. We set out to win today but that didn't happen. We'll try to put that right and get the three points on Friday."
