“On-loan forward Alan Gow picked up his first Anglian Man of the Match award of his Norwich City career as the Canaries clipped the Bluebirds promotion-chasing wings and earned three valuable points on Tuesday evening at Carrow Road.


When interviewed by Jeremy Goss in the Gunn Club at the post-match presentations Alan spoke about the importance of the game and the importance of the team winning their remaining games.

“Everyone knew we had to get a result tonight and it was great to get what we deserved,” he said.

Speaking about his own form since arriving in February on loan from Glasgow Rangers Alan added: “I have been struggling a wee bit with injury but I’m now getting fully fit. I’ve played all my career in Scotland apart from a loan spell at Blackpool earlier this season.”


Despite City’s ongoing battle against relegation, Alan was keen to emphasize that he was really enjoying his time in Norfolk and he also acknowledged the part the Norwich fans played in recent victories.


“I’m enjoying it down here and we have great support. It shows how great the fans are when you see where we are in the league and then see the numbers that turnout to support the boys every week.”


After his Man of the Match performance Alan was asked about his own game including his close control and particularly his dribbling skills to which he replied: “Some people call that greedy, but that’s life!”


When speaking about Cody McDonald’s first goal on his debut for the Canaries Alan was full of praise for the 22-year-old who has stepped up from non-league football to the Championship: “He took it really well and tonight is something he’ll always remember.”

“The manager is happy, the boys are happy but we all know we have to win a lot more games. Everybody is out for the same thing – we need to stay in this league. It’s do or die right now.”
