Marley Watkins is well aware Norwich City need to shake off their sloppy starts – but was happy to take a goal and another Carabao Cup win.
Waktins’ first competitive goal for the Canaries was their third on the night against League One Charlton and effectively killed a contest City went on to win 4-1.
However, the Addicks’ bright start was similar to most games this season that have pushed Daniel Farke’s side hard – and in Saturday’s case, left them with far too much to do to salvage anything from their day’s work.
“I thought it was a sloppy start,” said Welsh forward Watkins. “Obviously it’s all about the win in the cup games and we knew our quality would show through in the end, which it did. So happy days – we just crack on now.
“I’m not sure why it’s happening but it does need to get sorted. We’ll be looking to do that. Maybe it’s just one of those things and a coincidence, but obviously we’ve got to sort it out. No excuses, we’ve just got to start better.
“I thought we started too sloppy tonight, but we got into our groove and sorted it out.”
Next up for the Canaries is a return to EFL Championship action at newly promoted Millwall, who remain winless on their second tier return. Saturday’s game (3pm) is the last one before the first international break of the season.
