Ben Gibson has admitted that Norwich City were ‘rubbish’ after losing against Swansea City on Friday night.
The Canaries travelled to South Wales knowing that a the clash would be crucial in the hunt to secure promotion back to the Premier League.
Unfortunately for them things didn’t exactly go to plan as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Steve Cooper’s side.
Goals from Andre Ayew and Conor Hourihane made the difference on the night, but for Daniel Farke’s side there’s no doubt that the result was a huge setback.
That defeat saw Swansea City close the gap on the league leaders, while Brentford will now have a big opportunity to do the same as they take on Middlesbrough this weeekend.
One man who featured for the Canaries in that game was Gibson who took to social media with a simple message that indicated just how disappointed he was with the result.
Rubbish tonight – there will be plenty more twists and turns for sure 🟡🟢

He tweeted: “Rubbish tonight – there will be plenty more twists and turns for sure.”
Speaking to the club’s official website, he added: “Obviously it’s really disappointing.
“We’ve come here to win and I think we’ve controlled large parts of the game. We had a couple of mistakes that weren’t like us so disappointing goals to concede. It was a catalogue of errors really, which haven’t been in our game but crept in tonight.
“We’ve been on a good run and had a great start to the season. We wanted to come here tonight and make a statement. We haven’t done so. Whilst it feels like the end of the world now, it certainly isn’t.
“One thing we haven’t been doing is getting carried away when we’re riding high and it’s important that we don’t get too low now because we lost one game of football.
“We’ll go away and assess it, analyse it and learn from it, but you can’t get too down now because there are 18 games to go so there’ll be a lot more twists and turns yet.”
Quiz: Did each of these 18 ex-Norwich City players ever score a goal at Carrow Road?
There’s no doubt that this was a big setback for Norwich City.
The Canaries had previously looked like dead-certs to win the Championship but losing such a game against their promotion rivals has seen the race blown wide open.
Daniel Farke will now be hoping that his side can bounce back and get back to winning ways as soon as possible.
