Alex Neil: Needs a survival miracle

Alex Neil claimed he was “disappointed” to let another lead slip as Norwich were pegged back by West Ham at Carrow Road.

The Canaries went into a 2-0 lead with 25 minutes to play through goals from Robbie Brady and Wes Hoolahan, but just as they did in last month’s 5-4 home defeat by Liverpool they allowed that to slip as West Ham claimed a 2-2 draw.

Dimitri Payet (74) scored and claimed an assist for Mark Noble (76) as the Hammers hit back in two devastating minutes to claim an unlikely point.

“It’s a mixture of emotions,” said Neil. “The performance was better, we were on the front more, in comparison to recently.

“When we went 2-0 up we were good value for it. But the disappointing thing is we have let that lead slip.

“When you are 2-0 up you have to see game out. It should be easier to defend then. We are all disappointed because we should have seen the game out.

“But if we keep getting to that stage then it will give us chances to pick up points. We came really close to getting three points and I think we would have deserved it with that performance.”
