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."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
