The Canaries went into the game knowing that a win would be enough and Hughton was more than pleased to get the job done.

Hughton said: "I am absolutely delighted. Over the season we deserved it even though it has been tough the last few weeks.

"Looking at the Wigan result yesterday their tails will likely be up but today was our day."

Norwich took the lead in the first half but it was Grant Holt's goal after the break that was the decisive strike according to Hughton.

He added: "There were a few added pressures on us today but as soon as we scored the second I thought we would be okay.

"It means everything to the club and now we can build on the future. I had a tough act to follow but we want to be like West Brom now and establish ourselves in this tough Premier League."

Norwich City finish their campaign with a trip to Manchester City.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
