This is the biggest problem that the Canaries have at the moment. We saw a strike partnership of Harry Kane and Simeon Jackson. It’s fair to say that it didn’t exactly work throughout the game. It certainly wasn’t a massive surprise to see Kane hauled off at halftime and replaced with Grant Holt.
I wonder if this will be the last we see of Spurs loan player because he doesn’t seem to be doing a lot of good for Norwich right now. Holt showed, in the second half, that he is a cut above the other strikers, even though he wasn’t able to score.
Perhaps, the problem is that there needs to be a new striker that is a cut above Holt. Therefore, the next few days will be very interesting to see who comes in the door. I think, also, the more money that is spent, the better the quality is likely to be.
What is clear is if you can’t score against Luton, then the need to add to the firepower here is already, probably, more than was previously thought.
David McNally and Chris Hughton need to sit down and decide if they can really afford to not sign a striker, rather than if they can afford to. Like many Norwich fans, I feel a proven goalscorer is almost certainly the key to pulling clear of the relegation zone.
