David Wagner had his say on the key issues after Norwich City's 2-0 Championship win at Blackburn.

Liam Gibbs and Gabby Sara produced two superb finishes to cap a vital away win at their play-off rivals.

But injuries to Grant Hanley and Ben Gibson, following on from the pre-match injury blow announced regarding Kenny McLean, took some of the shine off the victory.

The German spoke to the media on Friday afternoon at Ewood Park.

Here is what he had to say.

“I have told the boys in football when you have bad situations is when you can gel as a group,” he said. “It gives you a bit of feeling, ‘Right, come on, let’s do it against all the odds when nobody believes in us and our qualities'.

"We believe in us, we trust each other and we knew that to win this game we could put tremendous pressure on a lot of teams above us. This is how it worked out.

“It was one of, if not the biggest win of the season. Not only because of the table, but because we faced so many knocks and setbacks in the last six, seven days.”

Hanley was stretchered off in the closing stages of the opening period, and clearly in distress, after tumbling inside his own area, while Gibson was withdrawn just past the hour mark at Ewood Park.

“We have to scan Grant but it looks serious. At this stage we don’t know the timescale,” said Wagner. “Gibbo pulled his hamstring and before the game of course we had the situation with Kenny, which more or less finished his season. Although he doesn’t need surgery. 

“But how the players took all this on board and how they reacted, how they fought, how much togetherness and team spirit they showed you can only praise. We also played some good football for a very, very big win.

"We will take the injuries on the chin and move on to Monday, and we can't wait for Monday.”
