Tim Sherwood was left to rue Tottenham’s missed opportunities after Norwich’s win at Carrow Road dented his side’s top-four bid.

Robert Snodgrass curled in the eventual winner from Bradley Johnson’s pass in the 47th minute to seal a victory which moves the Canaries away from the relegation zone.

We’ve got two home games where we have to bounce back

Emmaunel Adebayor and Nacer Chadli both missed chances to equalise in the second half as the home side held on.

And Sherwood admitted he was “bitterly disappointed” by the loss.

“I thought we were poor in the first half, we saw an improvement after half time but they got a goal that put the winds in their sails,” said Sherwood, whose side are now six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

“We created clear-cut chances after that, but if you don’t score you don’t win football matches.

“The second half was more like what we know we can do, but we are bitterly disappointed. We have to tighten up our entire performance.

“We’ve got two home games where we have to bounce back, we have to see if we have the character to do that.”

Meanwhile, Canaries boss Chris Hughton could not hide his delight after his side moved up to 14th in the Premier League.

“I’m immensely proud, there’s always a little bit of fear as we were in good form but without getting the results we deserved,” said Hughton.

“We had a very committed side against a really talented Spurs side, but it was a win we deserved.

“It was about defending well and John Ruddy came out a couple of times, and our centre-halves were very good. We dug in really well.”
