Canaries boss Glenn Roeder paid tribute to the Yellow and Green army today after the last of the 3,000 ticket allocation for today's trip to Leicester was snapped up.

The shutters closed just before 3pm as City fans again backed their team's resurgence, just days after the sell-out home clash against Hull in midweek.

This Saturday's City following will be the biggest in the league since the trip to Fulham on the final day of the 2004-05 season, when around 6,000 fans made the journey to west London.

“That's fantastic,” said Roeder. “I had always been aware of the great support Norwich enjoy, but it just keeps making you proud. It's tremendous, and a big motivating factor for all of us.

“I've always know the depth of support here, but it's the strength of feeling Norwich fans have for their club which I love.

“It's what I've been used to at some of the other clubs I've been involved with and it's really wonderful to see it here as well.”

City are the second best supported team in the Championship, with a home average of 24,483, beaten only by Sheffield United's Bramall Lane average of 25,148.

The biggest crowd this season at Carrow Road was 25,462, a month ago against this weekend's opponents, Leicester.
