Norwich City's manager was delighted with the manner of their victory over Leicester, and had no doubts about the winner.

Nigel Worthington told reporters he believed his side were rightfully awarded the penalty from which Leon McKenzie sealed City's fifth successive home win, and that he felt they might have had more as reward for their hard work.

"It was very hard fought," he said. "That's what this league is all about, grinding out results. Leicester came here to make us work hard and the character of the players was first class.

"The penalty second half was a stone cold penalty and the referee got the decision spot on. I thought we maybe could have had one, maybe two before half time."
