Maybe we shouldn't expect magic in the first half

Though Norwich didn’t essentially struggle in the first half, their passing accuracy and general fluency could have been better. This meant that some players didn’t really get going until Jonny Howson’s goal went in. This included Wes Hoolahan. He really struggled in the beginning stages but then had his typical moments of brilliance. By half time, I was wondering whether Alex Pritchard would be getting a look in earlier on than usual but Howson’s goal put an end to that.
