Norwich City goal hero Hoolahan feels Canaries full value for point

Goal hero Wes Hoolahan believes the Norwich City could have left the DW Stadium with all three points after the Canaries made their return to the Premier League this afternoon with a 1-1 draw at Wigan Athletic.

Hoolahan struck in injury time at the end of the first period to preserve a point for City after Ben Watson had fired the Latics ahead from the penalty spot in the 21st minute.

Despite having to withstand a Wigan onslaught in the last 10 minutes, Hoolahan believes City were unfortunate to leave the north west without all three points.

'It was entertaining. The two teams had a lot of chances and I thought it was an entertaining game.

'We had chances to win it as well at the end and I think we could have left with all three points.'

Hoolahan hailed the part played by Steve Morison in the build-up to his goal with the former Millwall man's cross being parried by Ali Al Habsi before the Irishman lashed home.

'Morison did well down the wing, he had a great game, and crossed the ball in and the goalkeeper dropped it and I put it in.
