Chances were at a premium at the Madejski as the Canaries held the Royals to make it four top-flight games undefeated in a row and Hughton was delighted to take a clean sheet away from the game.

He told Sky Sports: "I think you have to be happy with any point away from home in this division. For us every game is a tough game and they tested us today.

"They are a side that are of course looking for that win here, very direct and very physical in their game, a lot of running capacities that they've got and you've got to match all of that and I thought we did that today.

"We probably didn't play as well as I would have liked and the opportunities that perhaps we did have and the space that we did create we didn't make the most of it but away here, yes it's a decent result."

Hughton thought the Canaries defended well, adding: "They got a lot of balls into the box, we played into their hands a little bit, we gave away a few free-kicks, needless free-kicks which gave them the opportunity for the two centre-halves to get forward so I think on the basic defending I think we've done that really well.

"As the game opened up I thought we were perhaps the more likely to break away and score but it wasn't to be."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
