David Wagner insists Norwich City’s 1-1 Championship draw at Coventry City must kickstart the Canaries after a poor away run.

Ben Gibson’s 88th minute own goal cancelled out Jon Rowe’s first half opener, but did halt a spell of four consecutive defeats on the road in all competitions.

That late sting in the tail at the CBS Arena prompted some of the 3,000 strong travelling support to direct their frustration towards Wagner and his squad at the final whistle.

Norwich have now won only one of the last six to stall an unbeaten start to the campaign, and puncture the optimism. 

The head coach admits he has work to do during the international break, before Daniel Farke’s Leeds head to Carrow Road.

“You concede a goal and the feeling is totally different. Even if you had done exactly the same game, exactly the same performance, because the outcome was different,” he said, when asked about the full-time reaction from some of the travelling support. “We would love to give them three points to travel back but the support was amazing. Away from home we had nearly 3,000 with us. At least we gave them one point.

"Obviously our recent results away from home we're not great. This was the first point, the first step. We know we have work to do, without a shadow of a doubt. At the minute we are not very clinical, we create good opportunities, very good opportunities, but we are not clinical enough at the minute.

"We are now in the middle of the season, some better, some not so good performances, some wins, some draws, some defeats as well. We know we are in the middle of the competition in the league and we have some work to do. Which we will do.

"I was pleased with the effort, with the togetherness, with the commitment. It was a hard-fought point.”

The luckless Gibson headed Milan van Ewijk’s cross past Angus Gunn, after a resolute display from the centre back and Shane Duffy prior to the late setback.

“They did great,” he said. “Very good box defending, they found their spots where there should be if the crosses come in. We had some blocks, where we had to defend some shots as well. Gunny had a couple of comfortable saves from distance but apart from the last, maybe, 10 minutes, we looked quite confident in defending our box and had opportunities on the counter.

"If you defend crosses then a mistake can happen.”
