Striker aims for more of the same.

LEWIS Grabban is happy to be playing a central role in Norwich City's pursuit of Premier League football, after starring in the 3-2 victory at Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night.

The former Bournemouth striker teed up Jonny Howson to fire the Canaries in front early on, before doubling his side's advantage shortly before the interval with an exquisite lob.

Although Charlton rallied in the second period to level, a late Cameron Jerome header secured all three points for Alex Neil's men, and after the game Grabban told Norwich City TV: "The new manager has given me three starts, so hopefully I can repay him.

"Obviously you want to score as many goals as possible, and hopefully I can continue that. We're going to have to go on a run, be very consistent and keep winning to get into the top six.

"Today we've got another win and gained three points on Brentford and a couple of points on the leaders. It's tough, but you've got to win games."

City's victory sees them stay in touch with their promotion rivals in the Sky Bet Championship, ahead of facing play-off hopefuls Wolves at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The 27-year-old believes the win was deserved following a dominant display in the opening 45 minutes, commenting: "I don't think we've played much better in the first half of a game this season.

"It was very pleasing, but the second half didn't match it. That's why they've been able to get back into the game.

"We made a couple of mistakes which enabled them to get a couple of goals back. In the end we got the result we deserved, and I don't think it's too much to worry about as we've got the three points."
