Jamie Cureton is proud to captain the Canaries against Barnsley:
I’ve been thrown the armband now and again, but to be actually given it and lead the team out was a real, real proud moment. So when the manager pulled me and said: ‘Can you lead the boys, out?’ I felt really pleased.
Darren Huckerby squashes rumours of a rift with manager Glenn Roeder:
The fact of the matter is I’ve had no fall-out with the manager whatsoever. I read things that I’ve fallen out with every manager I’ve ever played for. I can honestly say I’ve never fallen out with any of them.

Loan signing Alex Pearce on his City debut:
It’s a nice start for me, but the main thing I wanted was a win and to have a clean sheet with it as well was a bonus. It was good to get off to a good start, but I need to carry that on now. Carry it on into next week if I get selected and put in another good performance and hopefully kick on from there.
Glenn Roeder is happy with the work he has done so far:
Eight points in November? I think you ask anyone of our supporters that before the end of February you would have 45 points and they’d say: ‘Go and put a strait-jacket on…
