City midfielder hails team spirit after goal seals points at Blackburn.

BRADLEY Johnson believes his sensational winning goal was just rewards for a complete team performance as Norwich City secured a late 2-1 victory away to Blackburn on Tuesday night.

The Canaries had trailed to an Alex Baptiste header at the break, but levelled shortly after the hour-mark when substitute Cameron Jerome struck.

With just five minutes remaining Johnson lashed home in spectacular style to seal all three points, and after the game told Norwich City TV: "It's a massive lift for us to come from a goal down away at Blackburn.

"We showed character to fight to the end, and to get the result is so relieving. Everyone knows that I like a shot, and for it to be the winning goal is massive for everyone.

"You could see that from the celebrations afterwards. We made it hard for ourselves in the end, but we were fantastic, especially the defence."

City have now won five consecutive matches to boost their Sky Bet Championship promotion bid ahead of Sunday's meeting with Ipswich Town at Carrow Road.

Johnson puts such impressive form down to collective effort, commenting: "You can see from the past five or six games we're together now.

"There are no individuals, and we're working together as a team. That's credit to the manager; he's come in and got us fighting from the first whistle to the last.

"He's come in and seen we've got talent, but talent doesn't win games if you don't work hard enough. If you work harder than the other team your talent will shine through.

"We're going into games confident of what we're doing, which is paying off with results. We've got a great team spirit and want to get out of the league this year.

"I want to be part of a promotion side, and I believe that's what we're going to do. We've just got to pick up as many points as we can and see where we are at the end of the season."
