Martin: With XI Norwich would've beaten Sunderland

Norwich City defender Russell Martin feels they can pleased with their point earned at Sunderland.

Martin is convinced they would've taken all three if not for the dismissal of goalkeeper Mark Bunn.

"I think to be honest, if we stay 11 v 11 we go and win the game; absolutely no doubt," Martin told the Pink 'Un. "I think we were well on top. The crowd had maybe turned a little bit against them. They were a little bit nervous and the sending off has given them a little bit of a leg up.

"But after that you have still seen we have given them a right good go and probably created the better chances.

"To say that we could get a point before the game we would have taken it, but in the circumstances we got it, to play 60-odd minutes with 10 men, it's a massive point, because they could have caught up with us.

"In the grand scheme of things, for us it could be one of biggest points we got yet."
