Jonny Howson was delighted Norwich City finally got what they deserved against West Brom after a series of good performances.
Robbie Brady bagged a second-half winner as Alex Neil’s side moved out of the Premier League relegation zone with a 1-0 success at The Hawthorns, their first win in 11 games since January 2.
Howson never doubted the Canaries’ spirit, though, and was just pleased to see his side get the rub of the green for a change.
“The fight, determination and work-rate is always there with us,” said the 27-year-old.
“It’s just a case that it perhaps shows a bit more when you win games. To be able to go over to the fans having won was great because they’ve been there for us in recent weeks.
“We’ll just concentrate on what we do, irrespective of other teams. We’ve got a couple of weeks until the next game so it’s good to go into the break with a win.
“We need all the lads to give everything, and they’re doing that.”
The Canaries kept their first away clean sheet of the season and back-to-back shutouts after a 0-0 draw with Manchester City.
Neil’s men have also narrowly lost to Chelsea and Leicester recently.
“We maybe got what we’ve deserved,” Howson told Canaries TV. “Our performance was probably at a similar level to recent weeks, and we just feel like we got the rub of the green.
“We’ve got to build on this now, having built on last week very well.”
