Brown bemoans misfortune

07 Apr 2007 - 07:49:33

Hull City boss Phil Brown thought his side deserved to take at least a point from the KC Stadium clash against mid-table Norwich City.

The Tigers hit the woodwork three times in the game, but only had a late Andy Dawson consolation goal to show for their efforts as they lost 2-1.

A downcast Brown said after the defeat, that leaves his side in danger of the drop: "When you've hit the post three times and had a stonewall penalty appeal turned down, you could say we were unlucky.

"We showed tremendous fight and character to come back to 2-1, but we didn't score our goal early enough.

"If we'd scored earlier we could have got a point or maybe even three.

"But Norwich deserve credit because they came here and did a turn on us. They played it system for system and tried to match up with us."

Brown thought his side should have had a last-gasp penalty when Jason Shackell appeared to handle the ball, adding: "Their player admitted to Dean Windass that he handled the ball. But the referee didn't see that.

"The assistant put his flag up and for a moment I thought he had seen it, but he was flagging for offside. It wasn't just one hand, he touched it with both."
