Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke has told FourFourTwo that he was happy to get a point in today’s 1-1 draw against Wigan Athletic.

The Canaries were hoping to get another win today as they march towards promotion and the Sky Bet Championship title. But surprisingly, they ended up being held by a Latics side that were much more resolute than Norwich could have expected.

Wigan got the chance to take the lead when they got a penalty just before the end of the first half due to a handball in the box from Ben Godfrey, though this was a controversial decision, and they took it when Reece James confidently slotted the spot kick away. Luckily for Norwich, they were able to get a point out of the match thanks to a goal from Teemu Pukki.

A draw may have been less than what fans wanted but Farke was happy to get a point out of the match. He said: “Football is not always fair, and it’s not always taken for granted that you get what you deserve,”

“In general, I felt we were pretty close to winning this game, but it was a very difficult game.”

“Wigan are a very good side at home, especially having taken the lead, and it was a very good performance from them.”

“It’s a good point, we will take that, especially given the situation with the league table, but of course you are dancing on the table when you win.”
