Norwich Boss Hails 'Tremendous Result' At Swansea

Norwich Boss Hails 'Tremendous Result' At Swansea

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton hailed his side's 'tremendous result' at Swansea City after winning 4-3 in a thrilling game at the Liberty Stadium.

The Canaries looked to have had the game all but won at the break having gone 3-0 up in a first half that Hughton says couldn't have gone any better for his side.

For the Swans, it was a 45-minute spell to forget but they looked to put things right after half time and get back into the game. They almost did as Michu got a goal back early on to give us hope of a comeback. de Guzman then narrowed the gap to just one goal before substitute Shechter had a goal ruled out for Michu's foul on the goalkeeper.

Snodgrass made it 4-2 direct from a free kick to end Swansea's slim hopes of getting a share of the points.

Hughton was delighted with the win and the performance, as they recorded their first away win and extended their unbeaten run to 9 games:

"It is a tremendous result and what I am really delighted about is that it is a win away from home against a club in really excellent form and at a tough place,"

"They showed second half why they had started the season so well but of course it is very much a game of two halves. That first half could not have gone any better for us. We didn`t make things easy for ourselves, albeit we could have been 4-0 up when Bradley (Johnson) hits the bar.

We conceded too early and that was always going to give them a lift. Probably the thing that I was delighted about the most was when it went to 3-2 the majority of those here will have expected it to go 3-3 and perhaps Swansea to get a winner.

I think we had a period where we had to really dig deep and the fourth goal was pivotal for us.

"It is a wonderful marker for them. We continually say every game is a tough one for us but that first half was really excellent. It doesn`t get any better but that is tough to sustain for 90 minutes.

The character we showed with 30 minutes to go - it was 31 minutes to go actually - even though it seemed like longer."

"I`m proud of the players for this run because they put in a tough shift every game,"

"Fortunately for us we showed enough resilience to see it through.

They deserve every credit going. They knew the points hadn`t come for us earlier in the season but it was about creating something within the group to get us on a run."
