Holt pleased to open account

Published Add your comment

Although Norwich left Stamford Bridge on Saturday without anything to show for it, Canaries skipper Grant Holt believes there were plenty of positives to take back to Norfolk with them.

The Barclays Premier League newcomers were very much in the encounter until Frank Lampard's penalty and a debut strike from Juan Mata sealed three points for the home side in the closing stages.

Holt, though, was pleased with the application and resilience on display from Norwich, while the 30-year-old was also glad to open his account for the season.

"It's good to get off the mark, you don't want people to keep talking about he hasn't scored and he hasn't done this," he said.


"If we had got the points it would have been a lot sweeter [on Saturday] and we are a little bit disappointed we didn't get anything. But to get off the mark and get that under my belt is a fantastic achievement."

He added: "I think we will look at the positives.

"The way we moved the ball, the way we worked them and got decent chances, they are positives.

"We are disappointed, obviously, that we didn't get anything out of the game but I'm sure that if we can keep churning out the performances we will be fine."
