Hughton proud as Norwich hold strong with ten men

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton was thrilled to see his players perform so admirably with ten men for a large portion of today's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

The Canaries lost goalkeeper Mark Bunn in the 30th minute after he handled outside the area when the score was 1-0 following Wes Hoolahan's earlier header.

Replacement gloveman Lee Camp was not able to keep out Craig Gardner's 40th-minute penalty but he and his defence denied the Black Cats and allowed Norwich to move to 12th on the table, with their spirit and determination delighting a proud Hughton.

"To be down to 10 men for as long as we were in this game and to come out of it with what I thought in normal play was probably the best chance of the game through Grant Holt when he was through - if his touch was a little bit softer, he was on for a one v one," said Hughton.

"But I can't remember a clear chance that Sunderland had, so I think we have got to give credit to a group of lads who were desperate to get something out of this game."
