The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 0-0 draw at home to Newcastle United.

Sunday Mirror: “The more likely winners were Norwich and manager Chris Hughton will be relieved that he has the abrasive Grant Holt back in the fold.”

The Mail on Sunday: “Fabricio Coloccini did not let his emotions affect his display as he helped Newcastle to their first clean sheet away from home in the Premier League this season.”

The Observer: “It was as well for Newcastle that Norwich were themselves a long way from their best. This was a match of very little quality . . . creativity was painfully absent.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Home manager Chris Hughton might have regretted not starting with Grant Holt, who was not risked after his hamstring problems, but he was reasonably satisfied.”

The Independent: “Norwich started with Grant Holt on the bench and spent the first hour wishing they had him up front, so often did they launch aimless crosses for Newcastle to head away.”
