Newcastle striker Wilson won't 'dig out' Clark after Norwich dismissal

Newcastle United striker Callum Wilson admitted frustration after their draw with Norwich City.

Wilson captained Eddie Howe's side and opened the scoring from the penalty spot, but Teemu Pukki's equaliser denied Newcastle — down to 10 men after Ciaran Clark's early dismissal — a first win of the campaign.

"It is difficult and frustrating," said the striker. "We knew how big the game was. At 11 versus 11 I think we'd win. It's difficult to pick up different bits and bobs because we were outnumbered and we had spells without the ball.

"But I did think my goal would be the winner. We limited them to minimal clear-cut chances. It can be difficult for the team with the extra body sometimes. We kept the door shut until the end, but it's a great finish (from Pukki).

"We can't feel sorry for ourselves. We pick ourselves up. We played football and controlled the game for parts."

Of Clark's error — he was sent off for tugging back Pukki with the striker in on goal — Wilson added: "Mistakes happen in football. We're not going to dig anyone out."
