Speaking to the clubs official website, assistant boss Richie Barker was standing in for Warney, who is isolating at home.

“The lads are devastated, They wanted to do it for the manager because they are well aware of the his Norwich connections. They are devastated because of the effort they have put in. It's a monumental effort for no points." he said.

“It's a hard one to take, no matter the time of the goal, because of the quality of our performance, The game hinged around four key points: the penalty miss, the own goal, the red card and their penalty."

“I am immensely proud of the players. Things just didn't go our way. The players have to take confidence from it. We have more than matched and competed with Norwich."

“I thought we had the two best chances after we went down to ten men. A lot of things worked towards us not winning the game."

“We FaceTimed Paul before the game and at half-time. He said it was even worse watching it from home than being there, but he will be proud of the players.”
