Norwich manager Chris Hughton hailed the contribution of Wes Hoolahan after the Republic of Ireland playmaker celebrated signing a new contract with the winning goal in the 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Wigan at Carrow Road.

The Canaries, knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Aston Villa here in midweek, made it five successive home league victories to continue their remarkable run of 10 Premier League matches unbeaten.

Hoolahan has agreed an extension to stay at the Norfolk club until 2015 and Hughton said: "Fortunately for us Wes has signed a new deal and he has earned it, and not just for this season. He was excellent today and to see Wes get a headed goal was worth the entrance fee alone."
