Our reporters Paddy Davitt and David Freezer bring you all the latest from the press conference as the Canaries prepare to host Brighton in the Championship.

The Seagulls fly north to Carrow Road on Friday for a televised clash that would see them seal the Championship crown with a win.

Brighton may be City captain Russell Martin's hometown club but he doesn't fancy watching celebrations from the edge of the dance floor when former Canaries boss Chris Hughton and his team arrive.

'I'm from Brighton and grew up there and most of my friends support them so, for me, I just don't want them to come here and win the league – as simple as that,' Martin said.

'As much as I'm pleased for Chris and I know a lot of people who are involved with the club or support the club, I'm pleased for them but I'm more disappointed that we're not there with them.

'Looking at their celebrations and everything, they've deserved it, don't get me wrong, but although I was pleased for them I was also jealous.
