New Norwich City goalkeeper Carlo Nash was delighted to feature in defeat to the Portland Timbers.

Nash played the full 90 minutes for his first outing since a summer Stoke move to provide back-up to John Ruddy and Mark Bunn.

“It’s some atmosphere. When you’ve got a chainsaw going on behind you in the stand it takes a bit of getting used to,” he said. “You have to wonder what is going on really. Last time I saw anything like that was the Hammer House of Horror.

“With the off season I had not played for a while so it was nice to get back to some sort of fitness and get them 90 minutes under my belt. I was happy with how it went on a personal level. Really for me it is about trying to get to know the lads I am playing with. I thought overall we did well but we got punished for a mistake at the back that has cost us a goal. The lads worked hard and maybe a bit of tiredness crept in. I thought we were magnificent in the first half. We managed to dictate the play a lot.”
