Norwich City boss Chris Hughton was delighted with victory over Crystal Palace.

Gary Hooper's goal on 30 minutes proved enough to give the Canaries a much-needed victory.

Hughton felt his side - hit by injuries to key midfielders Anthony Pilkington and Robert Snodgrass last week - produced the required response.

"It feels like a big win for us," Hughton said.

"We played very well in the first half and scored a good goal, but we knew they would come back.

"It is never comfortable viewing when you look at the league table and you are in a position you do not want to be in, so whatever places we have jumped tonight is a nice feeling."
