Hughton proud of record

Chris Hughton says it is an honour to be Norwich City's longest-serving Premier League manager in the club's history.

Hughton has overtaken the legendary Mike Walker as the Norwich manager with the most appearances in the dugout.

The pressure is on the Canaries boss to survive relegation this season and, ahead of Saturday's clash with Sunderland, Hughton was keen to point out that a win is still most important despite any personal achievement.

Hugton said: "I obviously feel a great deal of pride at being Norwich's longest-serving manager in the Premier League.

"But we are coming in on the back of a disappointing defeat at Southampton last week so we are looking for a big reaction.

"We are not shying away from just how big the game against Sunderland is, we know what it means and we are not under-estimating anyone.

"A win would help alleviate some of the pressure on us."
