Norwich City midfielder Bradley Johnson says manager Chris Hughton deserves to keep his job.

Teams beneath the Canaries have acted swiftly in sacking their bosses - largely to the detriment of form - and while Hughton's side remain in grave relegation danger after blowing a lead against 10-man Stoke City, the midfielder is insistent he is the man for the job.

"He is a great manager," Johnson said. "He has all of our support and the club have shown that by sticking by him. I don't agree with clubs sacking their managers if they're at the bottom of the table.

"We've stuck by our gaffer and we always will do."
