Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic believes the Potters paid for some wasteful finishing at Carrow Road on Saturday.
After Bradley Johnson opened the scoring before the break, Stoke piled on the pressure in the second half but couldn’t find a way past the Canaries’ goalkeeper, John Ruddy.
“We’re just not getting that bit of luck at the moment,” he said.
“We were getting in good areas in the second half, it’s just the finish that’s letting us down at the moment.
“Hopefully the quality will come through soon.”
Begovic believes referee Andre Marriner called it wrong when awarding a free-kick to Robert Snodgrass, which led to the winner.
“I think the hesitation in his decision was most disappointing because he wasn’t going to give it at first and then he changed his mind.”
Perhaps it takes a Premier League victory forged through adversity to view Norwich City in a more reflective light.
