Chris Hughton heartened by Norwich form after Stoke win

Manager Chris Hughton says he is pleased with Norwich's recent form after they beat Stoke 1-0 to take their tally to seven points from the last three Premier League games.

Bradley Johnson's header just before half-time gave Norwich victory, but Hughton was most pleased with their clean sheet.

Hughton shrugged off complaints from Stoke manager Tony Pulis that the free-kick which led to the goal should not have been awarded, putting the decision down to "the balance of the game".
