Norwich City striker Jamie Cureton admitted missed chances cost his side any claim to points at the Ricoh Arena.

Cureton himself was blameless, as his team-mates passed up several good opportunities to find the net, while last season's leading scorer could only look on - just like the travelling fans.

Lee Croft, Arturo Lupoli and Omar Koroma missed the best chances for a City side that outplayed the Sky Blues but just simply could net put the ball in the net, particularly in the second period in front of the away end.

Cureton had a good game alongside new strike partner Lupoli and was pleased with how a relationship had blossomed between the two.
