Josh Sargent has called on Norwich City fans to play their part in the Canaries' play-off push, after a pair of wins in very different home atmospheres.

The American's substitution triggered a toxic reaction in last Tuesday's 4-2 win over Watford, with head coach David Wagner criticising a "very small group" of fans post-match.

Both Wagner and Sargent were pleased with the crowd in Saturday's 4-1 defeat of Cardiff at Carrow Road, however, appealing for a united front in the final 13 games of the Championship season.

"That's exactly what we've been waiting for, to be honest," said Sargent. "We know that the fans are behind us.

"They were outstanding, and it was a very good response from everybody. The whole team noticed, and if we can get something like that going every week then it makes a big difference for us.

"We're putting together some pretty good performances at the moment. There are still some shaky times and some things we need to sort out, but overall there are a lot of things to be happy about with the team at the moment."

Sargent, who turned 24 on Tuesday, appealed to supporters as he left the pitch against Watford, shaking his head before heading down the tunnel nursing an ankle injury.

He said after the Cardiff win that players are affected by fans, and hopes that they can be used as a positive tool as Norwich edge closer to the top six.

"It was my decision that I couldn't play any longer," he continued, discussing the Hornets incident. "When the fans were trying to get on the boss I was trying to explain that it was me and not him.

"We know there have been some difficult moments, but I've got this ankle that I'm dealing with, sometimes it's not feeling the best.

"It's hard to ignore 26,000 people screaming the same thing! It was a very good change [in the Cardiff game], and we definitely noticed.

"We're right there with the play-offs, obviously, and every bit of support we can get from the fans will only help us."
