Erol Bulut on the touchline for Cardiff City

Erol post-Norwich City | A difficult afternoon

Erol Bulut spoke to the press following our Sky Bet Championship defeat to Norwich City.

“It was a very difficult afternoon," Erol began. "We played against a team that was much better, the game for them was much better than for us.

"When we see the first 20 minutes, they were pushing, but we made it 1-0. After that, we didn’t manage it. We have to accept today that we didn’t have a great game.

“I knew when I started this season what I have and where I want to be. When we speak about the top six, we have a long way to work, but it’s about time and work. We have to keep working to be where our opponents are.

“I don’t like losing, my players don’t like losing, but we started well this season. We have to continue for the last 14 games and give the fans something back. We have to show more, even if the opponent is stronger than us."

The Bluebirds return to action in midweek, hosting Blackburn Rovers at Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Erol continued: “I think it is a good moment to play at home in front of our fans. We have to give back to the fans and get three points. Now, it’s a good time to think about everything today, then tomorrow, we analyse it together. On Tuesday, we have to be much better to get three points.

“I have to handle it quick with my players, because we need them again on Tuesday on the field. I spoke with them also inside, they have to be positive. They are already down, because we lost 4-1, so I try to keep the morale up to have a good morale on Tuesday for the game."
