Norwich City have finally discovered what it feels like to win a game of football after a run off 11 games which had yielded just a measly two points to leave them rock bottom of the Championship.

Carrow Road rocked to the rafters after Saturday's 2-0 win over Coventry City which proved there was still life in the ailing Canaries.

“We got what we deserved for once,” said a delighted Roeder, who had shown his players a motivational DVD on the eve of the game to get their blood pumping.

“It showed them how the top players blocked shots, blocked crosses, put their bodies in the way of the ball to stop the ball going into the net,” said Roeder.

“It made the hair stand up on the backs of their neck and I thought they were pumped up and ready for today's game and they played like that as well. I didn't think anyone put in a poor performance. It was a team performance and that's what we are - we are not splintered, we are united.
