Betting Shop: Hughton disappointed with Norwich City loss

On Sunday, pay per head sportsbooks and betting shops saw that two Christian Benteke goals reversed the early opener by Wes Hoolahan, before Leandro Bacuna and an own goal by Sebastien Bassong sent Norwich to a fifth consecutive away loss.
And Hughton said that he was disappointed with the manner of his side’s loss, which leaves Norwich at the bottom three, and many people with a betting site could see that many fans were also not very happy.
“I thought for 25 minutes we kept the home crowd quiet, got the goal, possibly could have had another and I think for an away performance we couldn’t have started any better, but in a 15-minute period we couldn’t handle the power and pace they had,” he said.
“We know the sort of power that Benteke has, but we needed to have a period after going behind where we consolidated and made sure that we didn’t concede again. We didn’t do that.
“Consequently, the game was over. You can get as much pride as you want with a second-half performance and you can try to get back in the game but it becomes very difficult.
“Our form has been good, and we have been on the back of some good defensive displays,” he added. “So right at this moment it’s a real body-blow because that’s not how we’ve been in recent weeks.”
Although there was a morale-boosting win last week over Tottenham, pay per head sportsbooks and many people with a betting site saw that Hughton’s position at Carrow Road created much speculation – and that will likely to increase following Sunday’s overturn.
However, betting shops can see that the manager seems to be defiant, as he talked about Norwich’s chances for survival.
“As a manager, you have to accept any criticism that comes your way after a defeat – It’s normal,” Hughton added.
“We have a home game next Saturday (against Stoke City) and we know a win and results going our way changes things again.

“I put all of my efforts into the job that I do. It’s (the sack) not something that I think about. The only way I can affect that is to get the results that we need.”
Price per head services and betting shops all over the world will see how Norwich continues to perform, and wonder if things will turn around for them.
