Peter Grant says Norwich City players have plenty to prove before he can believe talk of corners being turned.

The Canaries boss saw his team win for the first time after three defeats with a come-from-behind victory over Leeds after an unlucky defeat by Wolves, when he saw his team do everything but score.

“That tells me there is still something that is not there. Because when you are dominating a game like we did against Wolves, to only get three points - I was far from happy.
