City star hails Bunn heroics

Norwich captain Grant Holt hailed Mark Bunn's penalty save in Saturday's draw with QPR as "massive", believing it helped achieve a fair result.

Bunn gave away the second-half spot-kick when he felled Adel Taarabt, but maintained his 100% record of saving penalties in the Premier League to earn a 0-0 draw, denying the Moroccan from 12 yards.

It was a vital point for Norwich whose recent form has seen them slide towards trouble, and Holt knows just how important it could be.

Speaking to the Eastern Daily Press he said: "I think it does feel like a very useful point. They are a team that the last few weeks have got a lot to play for, they've bought a few different players and spent a bit on Thursday.

"But we knew what we had to do. We came with a plan of moving them and we were unlucky with a couple of chances, and to be fair the draw was probably a fair result.

"It could be massive save, especially for us. It was a big moment. At that time on the clock we had a bit of momentum and we were a bit disappointed with how we conceded it, but that's football and Bunny has done brilliantly."
