Norwich boss Hughton welcomes back Holt

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is delighted with the return of Grant Holt.

Hughton acknowledged Holt's influence spreads far beyond the confines of the pitch on a matchday.

"He is a big player for us. Not only his ability on the football pitch but he is the captain and has been for a number of years," he said.

"Going into this period of the season we need as many fit players as we can and it was good to see him back. We made the right decision on medical advice. We need Grant fit, not only today but the next game and the next game after that so it was important we did things right over this past week. We hope and expect there to be no reaction and he pushes on."
