'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hughton Delighted With Response


Norwich City manager, Chris Hughton has expressed his delight at the response his players produced in the victory over Sunderland.

Before the start of play, City were just four points clear of the 18th placed visitors who also have three games in hand on The Canaries.

But Saturday's fine 2 nil victory gives City breathing space and moves them up to 13th in the table on 32 points - something that eases the ever present pressure on Hughton.

He said: 'We wanted a reaction from last week. We didn't shy away from the fact we knew this was a big game because of who the opposition were.

'I thought we were excellent from start to finish. I think that was one of our best performances of the season. We have had good ones before. I remember (against) Manchester United here for 45 minutes we were very good.

'We have had better performances but you have to score the goals at the right time and in that first-half period when we were good we got those goals.'

Hughton couldn't get out of his seat fast enough to celebrate the game's second goal, a wonderful volley from Alex Tettey.

'I think everybody would have enjoyed that second goal and it could not have happened to a nicer fella,' Hughton added.

'He is a good individual and professional and that was probably why there was that type of response. Alex is not going to score too many like that in his career.

'When you are a player and you score that type of goal and you know it is going to be shown over and over it is a really nice feeling and the lads are delighted for him.'

This victory again showed Hughton's ability to motivate his men when the chips are down and a result is badly needed. I've lost count of the number of times he has pulled a rabbit out of the hat and while his job is far from safe, I do think he will keep us in the League, giving the board a big decision to make in the summer.
