Chris Hughton was delighted with Norwich’s 1-0 victory against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon and felt it was “a big win” in their fight to avoid Premier League relegation.
The Canaries boss’ job was on the line going into the game against Tim Sherwood’s Champions League-chasing Spurs outfit after the club’s chief executive David McNally suggested his future was in doubt after just one win in the 11 matches before the weekend.

However, after Robert Snodgrass fired in the only goal of the game early in the second half to secure the win which moved Norwich four points clear of the relegation zone, Hughton was adamant he did not think about his own position because he was fully focused on preparing the team to try and win.
The former Newcastle manager insists he has the backing of the players and hopes the win on Sunday will be the catalyst to them moving further up the Premier League table.
He said: “One thing I can guarantee you is that everyone is pulling in the right direction here.
“It feels like a big win. My biggest concern was we’ve had a good level of performance over the last few games but didn’t get the results we deserved. We got that today.
“I’m pleased for the lads because they were as frustrated as anyone.”
