Norwich City winger Anthony Pilkington has described recent pressure on manager Chris Hughton as "crazy".

Hughton's job was reportedly on the line before Saturday's 1-0 win at Stoke City in the Premier League.

"It's crazy," Sky Sports News quotes Pilkington as saying. "We have brought a lot of new players in and it takes time for them to gel, but you have seen what we can do."

Saturday's victory at the Britannia Stadium has lifted Norwich up to 14th place in the Premier League table.
