Norwich City manager Chris Hughton feels that his side showed great "character" in their win over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has hailed his side's "character" following his side's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

Gary Hooper put the Canaries in front in the 13th minute and Leroy Fer secured the victory.

Hughton told BBC Sport: "It was one of those old-fashioned battles. In the end they had four or five forwards and we were able to catch them on the break. It shows character in the side, delighted with the clean sheet.

"Gary [Hooper] is a super finisher and he's now up to speed with his physical condition. He's benefitting from a run of games in the team."

Norwich moved up to 14th in the Premier League with the win.
