Canaries go into October international break with a win

NORWICH City captain Russell Martin praised his side's mentality after closing out a 2-1 Sky Bet Championship win at Wolves on Saturday evening.

Goals in either half from Cameron Jerome and Robbie Brady put City in control, before David Edwards pulled one back for Walter Zenga's side with ten minutes remaining.

Having seen a lead reversed at Newcastle late on in midweek, Martin credited the manner with which the Canaries held on to secure a valuable three points.

"It's a massive win, and a really good one," the skipper told Norwich City TV after the match.

"We were really dominant in the first half, then in the second half did the job. The way we saw out the last 15 minutes after Wednesday was a really good response.

"We've answered a few questions having been bitterly disappointed on Wednesday. To come to a place like this before the international break, it's a great win.

"Ideally we'd have been a bit more comfortable but you could see at the end how much it meant to everyone."

Victory at Molineux, Norwich's first there this century, lifted them back up to second in the table following on from results elsewhere earlier in the day.

With almost a quarter of the season now elapsed as the league action halts for the latest international break, Martin says City won't get ahead of themselves.

"It's the oldest cliche in the game but we're taking things one game at a time," the Scotland defender added.

"Even after Wednesday there was no big sitting down or anything like that. We'd been on a great run before that and this is six games out of seven we've won now.

"The manager asked for a response today and he got one. We've just got to keep plodding away and keep picking up wins.

"At times it hasn't been pretty but it won't always be that way. We just need to win games and we've done that."
