Red card was blow – Eagles

Half-time substitute Chris Eagles insisted Bolton would have taken at least a point against the Canaries but for the sending-off of Ivan Klasnic.

Eagles replaced Tuncay for the second half as 10-man Wanderers tried to get back into the game.

“I feel that if we’d had eleven men in the second half then we would have definitely got something from the game. It just shows that our performance in the first 45 minutes let us down,” he told the club’s official website.

“The lads gave 100 per cent after half-time but we can’t give anyone a head start. Norwich have done very well in getting promoted and they showed that today and credit to them.

“I believe that we were the better team in the second half. But we had left ourselves a hill to climb.”
