I’m glad Nicolas Jackson got a touch on it, said Palmer. We showed a bit of passion and had the courage to play, which is what we need as a young team.

It was a strange and frustrating game for us, said Howe. We were good in spells, but obviously not good enough overall. The goals we conceded were really poor, and we can defend better than that.
