Gunn relief at Canaries start

Published Add your comment

Norwich manager Bryan Gunn felt a flying start was the key to his side's crucial 2-0 victory over Watford.

The Canaries got their reward for taking the game by the scruff of the neck early on when Watford youngster Danny Rose was pressurised into a bizarre long-range own goal before Gary Doherty headed home to seal the win.

"I reminded the players about the slow start we made to our previous home game against Sheffield Wednesday when we lost the game," said Gunn.

"They responded to that by making a really quick start this time and, supported by our biggest crowd of the season, we went on to put in a spirited and committed performance and got the result we deserved.

"It's a massive boost to be outside the bottom three and now we have got to try and make sure we stay there.

"We need to produce three more performances like this in our final matches, starting at Ipswich next Sunday.

"If we do that, and get the right results, then nobody will be able to take our Championship status away from us.

"I'm just delighted with the way we played."
