Norwich City boss Daniel Farke says he is "angry and frustrated" with his sides performance at Championship newboys Millwall on Saturday.

The Canaries conceded three times in the first half, before Shaun Hutchinson's header finished off the 4-0 win for the Lions - their first in the campaign.

The Canaries have won only one of five games this season and conceded 12 goals after five games.

Defensive problems are continuing to be a problem for City, who, for a second weekend in a row, conceded four goals away from home.

Speaking to Norwich City TV, Farke said: "Our defensive behaviour in the first half was why we lost the game.

"I'm totally annoyed and frustrated about our defensive behaviour. I totally understand the fans' concerns.

"We have to improve. I'm hurt and the squad is hurt. We are angry and really sorry for the fans as that's not what we want to bring."

Meanwhile, it was a day also to forget for rivals Ipswich Town.

A record-breaking fifth straight win to start the league season proved too much for Ipswich, who lost 2-0 at Fulham.

Manager Mick McCarthy admitted his side were beaten by the better team, but praised goalkeeper Bart Bialkowski for a brilliant performance.

Bart was terrific for us and kept us in the game.

Sometimes though, you just have to accept that the opposition were better on the day and this was one of those occasions.

They were excellent and I’m not sure there was anything more we could have done about it.

We’re disappointed to lose obviously but if you’d offered me 12 points out of 15 at the start of the month, I’d taken that all day long. It’s been a good month.

– Mick McCarthy, Ipswich Town Manager
