Worthy warns against complacency

A second win and clean sheet of the week for Norwich was enough to please the boss at Carrow Road yesterday.

Nigel Worthington, however, was in no mood to rest on any laurels as he thought some of his players were when they took their foot off the gas late on.

Jonatan Johansson put City ahead in the first half and the rebirth of Darren Huckerby continued when the man of the match followed up a vintage performance against Brighton with another goal and another virtuoso display.

"It was a good all round performance," Worthingon told the club's official website. "We won by two goals and it could have been more. The most pleasing thing was the energy put in after three games in a week. I'm delighted with that, the result and the clean sheet."

"The disappointing thing is we haven't learned to win the game when we should," he added. "At 2-0 up you must learn to just keep the ball. They have gone on to have a few shots at our goal by us giving it away."

On the subject of Huckerby, Worthington was typically level headed. The Ulsterman is sparing with his praise of certain players, which made his assessment of his talismanic forward seem more gushing than it may appear.

"We know what he can do and we know what he's capable of," he said. "He's in good form at the moment and he's a very big player for us."
