Hughton hails Norwich resilience to snatch point against Tottenham

Robert Snodgrass stuck late on for the Canaries to cancel out Mousa Dembele's opener and earn a 1-1 draw, but the ex-Spurs coach felt they deserved an even better result
Norwich manager Chris Hughton was disappointed not to take all three points against Tottenham after his side secured a late 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane.

Mousa Dembele opened the scoring for the hosts on his Spurs debut, but Robert Snodgrass struck five minutes from time to earn a point for the Canaries.

It was a second successive draw for Norwich after being held at home to QPR, and Hughton felt that they could have picked up maximum points in both games.

"We were the better team last week and were disappointed we didn't get the win, and I think it was similar today," he told Sky Sports after the game.

"They had more possession than we did but I think we carved out some good opportunities and, on chances, I thought we edged it.

"We are a very resilient group of players and I was probably delighted more than anything about the fact that nobody dropped their heads after we went a goal down."

Hughton also had praise for Snodgrass, who opened his Premier League account after his summer switch from Leeds.

"It was a very good finish, and he has been super since he came to us. What he has to continue to do at this top level is score goals, and that is the challenge for him in this division," added the Norwich boss.
