Norwich goalscorer Pukki delighted with Leicester draw

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki hailed the performance for their 1-1 draw at Leicester City.

Pukki fired the visitors in front on 27 minutes but sustained a nasty injury just before Jamie Vardy equalised for Leicester.

"It was not easy to play," he admitted to canaries.co.uk afterwards. "These things happen, I just wanted to keep playing and give my all.

"With all that adrenaline, it helps. It was not that painful, maybe tomorrow [Sunday] I will feel it even more.

"It's a hard place to come. Leicester have been on good run lately but we still had a couple of chances to score and make it 2-1.

"Of course, we are happy with the point but we could have got even more.

"We can take a lot of confidence from this. They have a good defence and goalkeeper but if we keep doing the same things in the next few games and use our chances, I think we'll be getting even more points in the future."
