Winger seals victory with superb strike

JOSH Murphy is determined to keep pushing for first team opportunities after Norwich City after helping guide his side past Everton in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

With the Canaries already leading through Steven Naismith's first half strike, the young winger secured victory with 15 minutes remaining by curling home superbly for his second of the campaign.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the 2-0 win, Murphy said: "The manager told everyone to go and stake a claim, which we all did.

"There are a lot of players pushing for a place in the first team. Everyone dug in and when we got chances we put them away.

"It just shows how strong our squad is. We've gone out and shown everyone what we can do.

"I'll keep working to make sure I have a claim at staying in the team."

Describing his measured strike, which effectively sealed City's progress, the youngster added: "I've come inside with the ball and just hit it.

"It's clipped the underside of the bar and gone in. To get the second goal was a relief, whether it was me or someone else.

"When you see how I celebrated, you can tell how much it meant to myself and the boys. I was just happy for anyone to score; that it was me was a bonus."
