Hughton: Canaries win a fitting tribute

Published Add your comment

Chris Hughton felt Norwich had paid a fitting tribute to former manager John Bond as they booked a place in the last 16 of the Capital One Cup with a 1-0 win over Doncaster at Carrow Road.

There had been a minute's silence before kick-off in memory of the Canaries legend, who was in charge for a seven-season spell from the mid-1970s, leading the Norfolk club to the League Cup final. Alexander Tettey marked his debut with a fine strike midway through the first half which proved enough to set up a home tie with Tottenham.

"When I came to this club in the summer, the first name you think of as former managers is John Bond," Hughton said. "If I am able to be at this club anywhere near as long as John was, then I would be incredibly lucky. He will be thought of very fondly by a lot of people."
