Cardiff manager David Jones admitted his side were lucky to come away from Carrow Road with all three points.

"Sometimes you don't play as well as you can and still take the points. This was one of those occasions," Jones admitted.

"Peter Grant will feel hard done by right now, and he probably feels like I did after our first two home games this season.

"We dominated like they did in our games against Stoke and Coventry without getting any reward.

"Today was probably our worst performance of the season and yet we come away with a win.

"We'll have to play a lot better than that and the players know it. Having said that, I'll take the result."

Jones was pleased that his decision to make three substitutions before the hour mark paid dividends, with one of them, Whittingham, netting the equaliser as he got on the end of a fine cross from youngster Darcy Blake, another substitute.

"I wasn't happy with how we played in the first half and decided to give Norwich something different to worry about and fortunately it paid off," he added.

"I thought we played a lot better in the second half and that's got a lot to do with the strength of the squad I've got now.

"Now I can bring on players from the bench and not affect the strength of the team and that's very important. I don't think it was the case last season.

"We are not the finished article yet but I've still got people out there who are playing to get fit like Peter Whittingham, Robbie Fowler and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink, and we will get stronger as the season goes on."
