Nigel Worthington praised the desire and commitment which saw the Canaries come away from Home Park with the point they deserved.

The City boss, whose side are now unbeaten in four successive away fixtures and face a home clash with Watford next Saturday, also found time to laud the equalising goal from the sporadically match turning talent that is Darren Huckerby.

"I'm pleased with the way that after conceding the way we did in the first half we kept our nerve, kept our concentration and went on to earn an excellent point," said the reigning Championship Manager of the Month. "Make no mistake about it, this is a difficult place to come and play."

On Huckerby's solo effort, which cancelled out Simon Charlton's first half own goal, the gaffer, who has criticised the forward for some of his showboating, added: "It was a great individual goal and their right-back didn't know whether he was coming or going as Darren ran at him. The finish was excellent and that just shows what he is capable of doing."
