Dean Smith is yet to taste defeat as the Norwich City manager after his team came from behind to secure a point against ten men. The Canaries could only settle for a point despite playing over eighty (80) minutes with ten men.
For his first game, Smith masterminded a 2-1 comeback win over Southampton with goals from star striker TeemuPukki and skipper Grant Hanley turning the game on its head after Southampton striker Che Adams had given the visiting team the lead.
Smith made it two league games unbeaten in the Norwich City dugout with the unfortunate goalless draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Norwich City created enough chances to win the game, but they were unable to find a way past a stubborn Wolves rearguard.
In his third game as the Norwich City boss, Dean Smith saw Newcastle United go down to ten men when Irish defender Ciaran Clark was sent off in the ninth minute for a professional foul on Pukki. Norwich City failed to make the numerical advantage count as Newcastle United took the lead from the penalty spot on 61 minutes after Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour was penalised for handball. Leading goalscorerCallum Wilson stepped up to score the penalty for hosts Newcastle United, but they could not hold on thanks to the 79th minute equaliser from Finnish striker Pukki as the two teams settled for a 1-1 draw.
With the result from Tuesday’s league clash at St. James Park, Dean Smith is now unbeaten in three games as a Norwich City manager ahead of the visit to Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend. In total, Norwich City have picked up eight points from their last four games with no defeat.
