Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy accepts the team must "tighten up" if they are to progress in the Barclays Premier League - which can only boost his own England chances.

The Canaries finished a creditable 12th place on their return to England's elite under Paul Lambert, who has now taken over at Aston Villa, but despite all their hard work, Norwich ended the 38-game campaign with a goal difference of minus 14.

"You know you are always going to be busy in a league like this, but last season, we only managed something like three clean sheets and we want to build on that," said Ruddy, who is now away with the rest of the Norwich squad and manager Chris Hughton on a pre-season training camp in Austria.
