Here are the national newspapers' views on Saturday's 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.
The Observer: 'Norwich, meanwhile, can take heart from a point won with a spirited performance and their first clean sheet in more than two months. It could prove a springboard to survival.'
The Daily Mail: 'The fans were in terrific voice yesterday as Norwich, who had travelled together on the bus in a change from their normal routine, then parked it. They were happy to put 10 players behind the ball at times and it worked.'
The Telegraph: 'Take nothing away from Norwich, who showed the commitment and energy of a side playing for Premier League survival and were rewarded with a point and their first clean sheet in 11 games.'
The Daily Mirror: 'Norwich just can't hurt teams, Patrick Bamford started his first game for Norwich and hit the bar with a half-volley. But for all their pretty possession, Alex Neill's team lacks firepower. Throwing on Cameron Jerome and Dieumerci Mbokani didn't work either.'
The Sunday Times: 'Left to rue two lackadaisical transfer windows, Norwich's lack of a Premier League quality striker has derailed the promise of what has intermittently had the makings of a season of survival.'
The Sunday People: 'This spirited display lifted the gloom in East Anglia.'
