Jamie Cureton says Norwich City were given a taste of their own medicine on Saturday - and it didn't help relieve any pain

A fortnight ago a Cureton double took the wind out of Southampton's sails as a struggling City side came from a goal down to win all three points.

This time, it was City who were ahead, before two goals - one just before the hour mark, one just before the end - cost them the points.

“It is frustrating,” said Cureton. “We felt we were in complete control of the game. Up until they scored I thought we would run out and win the game comfortably, but it all changed on their goal.

“We then started to play how we have been playing, lost our ascendancy in the game, our foothold, and we ended up giving away a sloppy goal at the end to lose it.

“We did it a few weeks ago against Southampton - that goal that gets you back in and then you start to believe a bit, but it think before that they thought the game was going away from them.

“I had a chance in the first half, I half slipped and lost the opportunity a bit, but he (Roger Johnson) made a great challenge in the end. But even then we were in control.

“We have caused our own problems and it seems to be the case at the moment; teams aren't carving us apart, we just seem to be giving away silly little goals and we have to put that right as a team.”

Grant lectured his players post-match, but Cureton said it wasn't the Alex Ferguson hair-dryer treatment.

“It was not so much ranting and raving,” he said. “The manager put his thoughts across that he didn't think it was good enough and for the type of players we have got in the squad we should be performing better and winning games like this.

“We have to accept that - we are grown men at a big club that should be pushing at the top end of the table and at the moment we are not producing the goods.”
