Striker seals three valuable points in the Welsh capital

NORWICH City are continuing to head in the right direction following Saturday's 1-0 Sky Bet Championship victory at Cardiff, according to match-winner Cameron Jerome.

The striker's 40th minute diving header to meet a Wes Hoolahan free-kick proved enough to settle a combative contest, securing a third consecutive maximum haul in the league.

Speaking to Norwich City TV after the game, Jerome said: "We were under no illusions it was going to be a tough game coming here.

"We'd done our homework on Cardiff and how they play. We knew they are pretty direct at every opportunity they were given.

"I thought we were tremendous, we defended ever so well. It's pleasing to get another clean sheet and another three points.

"It's time for us to roll our sleeves up and grind out games. It's another step in the right direction."

Jerome's goal marked the second time in as many weekends he had come back to a haunt a previous employer, having also netted against Birmingham seven days earlier.

"It's nice to get a goal against my former team," he added.

"I always seem to get one here. I headed it and was looking to see where it went but it seemed to take an age to go in.

"It was enough for us to win the game which is pleasing and it's onto the next one on Tuesday now. We've got to go there with a professional attitude.

"Everywhere is such a distance from Norwich and it's testament to the fans who come in their numbers. It's nice to be able to give them something to shout about and we go to Wigan on a high."
