Bolton boss Neil Lennon admits that his side deserved their 2-1 defeat at Norwich on Friday night.

Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon has admitted that he has no complaints with his side's defeat to Norwich City on Friday.

The Trotters were beaten 2-1 at Carrow Road, keeping them in the relegation zone in the Championship table.

Cameron Jerome netted twice for the hosts, while Lee Chung-yong scored a late consolation for Bolton.

"That's the benchmark and that's what we strive to be, where Norwich are," Lennon told Sky Sports News. "We lacked a bit of legs in midfield, a bit of physicality and our two centre-halves struggled against their strikers. We were second best and Norwich deserved to win the game."

Bolton are back in Championship action on Tuesday night when they entertain Cardiff City.
