Snodgrass hails massive result

Robert Snodgrass described Norwich's 2-0 victory over Sunderland as a "massive result" for the club.

The win for Norwich takes them seven points clear of the bottom three with eight games remaining as manager Chris Hughton once again saw his side win when there was pressure on his position at the helm.

Scotland international Snodgrass, who scored the opener for Norwich, was pleased with the vital victory.

But he is keen to keep the momentum running into the forthcoming games with fellow strugglers Swansea and West Brom.

"It was a massive result for the boys and everyone involved in the football club," he said.

"It has been very frustrating at times but I'm delighted we have got the three points. When we have to win we produce and that is a sign of big characters.

"It is a great result for the club all round and hopefully we can build on it because that is the only way we can get out of the relegation dog-fight."

Snodgrass' opener was his third goal in six games, with the 26-year-old enjoying a spell of good performances at present - something he always believed would happen.

"A season isn't done in six months," added Snodgrass.

"I told people to be patient and to stick with and I would repay them and I feel as if I have done that."
