Canaries fail to break down Toon

Published Add your comment

The need for Newcastle and Norwich to add quality to their squads was laid bare at Carrow Road as the sides played out a dull 0-0 draw.

Chris Hughton had a chance to banish memories of Norwich's dismal festive period and get one over on the club that sacked him so harshly in December 2010, but his side only had two serious attempts on goal - a Russell Martin shot that clipped the post and a late header from captain Grant Holt.

With the unfit Holt consigned to the substitutes' bench for most of the match, Norwich lacked a clinical edge up front. Newcastle, who had lost their previous four games, fared even worse in going forward as Papiss Cisse worked hard up front, but failed to test Mark Bunn in the Norwich goal.
