They may be 250 miles apart, but twins Josh and Jacob Murphy are thriving.

While Josh is enjoying being a regular part of Neil Adams' matchday squad, Jacob is winning a whole new set of fans on loan at fellow Championship side Blackpool, where he has won the club's November Player of the Month award.

'I'm delighted and everyone's delighted for him,' said Josh.

'It's good for him going up there and doing well, because everyone wants to see that.

'He's just thriving on confidence and he's playing well, so I'm delighted for him and he's obviously buzzing. I hope it continues and I'm sure it will.

'He just needs to keep going and then as soon as he's back at Norwich, he can start doing the same here as well.'

Josh, 19, speaking to his club's official website, said last weekend's win at Wigan can kick-start another run of form for City.

'We're a good team and there's no reason why we can't push for promotion, even after the bad run we've had,' he said. 'Especially in this division, you need to get a little run going. I think that will come through. We went eight games unbeaten with a lot of wins in there, and with the team we've got it's something we're looking towards. We're seven points off the top two and anyone can beat anyone in this league. The players that we've got in there, there's no reason that we can't get promoted.

'There's a good togetherness with us all, it's a big family. The results haven't been going our way but the performances have been there.'

Murphy enjoyed his breakthrough season last year and has been a part of every matchday squad in the league this campaign.

'It just shows that the manager has got faith in me,' he added.
