Earnshaw delighted by City landmark
Robert Earnshaw has set the highest possible standards since moving to Norwich City - having bagged goals in seven consecutive home games. The Wales striker drew a blank on his home debut, the 2-1 defeat by Ipswich in February, but since then has proved worthy every penny of his £3.
Robert Earnshaw has set the highest possible standards since moving to Norwich City - having bagged goals in seven consecutive home games.
The Wales striker drew a blank on his home debut, the 2-1 defeat by Ipswich in February, but since then has proved worthy every penny of his £3.5m transfer fee from West Brom in January.
Earnshaw has now bagged a dozen goals in 18 starts for City, including four in four Championship games this season.
“It's good - people have been pointing that out to me over the last couple of days, but I've always just aimed to score as many goals as possible,” said Earnshaw, who will be joining up with the Wales squad this week for their European Championship qualifier in the Czech Republic on Saturday.

However, the man with the biggest smile in football warned against getting too carried away with City's early-season form.

“As long as we keep playing the football we are playing we will be okay,” he said. “We will be right up there.
“We have set ourselves standards from the very first game from a footballing point of view. If we can maintain those and keep doing what we are doing we will create chances and the rest will follow.”
