Kieran Richardson rues Sunderland's performance against Norwich City.

Kieran Richardson has apologised to Sunderland's fans following last night's 2-1 loss to Norwich City in the Premier League.

Trailing 2-0 to the Canaries deep into the second half, the 26-year-old fired a successful 86th-minute strike to earn his first goal of the season and give the Black Cats hope of salvaging a point.

"I was pleased to score but the result overall is very disappointing," Richardson told Sunderland's official website.

"We were on a high after the [4-0 win against Stoke], but we didn't play well tonight. We had possession in the first half, but it wasn't effective.

"It's a shame because we have let the fans down and I am sorry for that."

Sunderland, who are currently 14th in the table with five points from six games, will host West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
