Norwich City's Grant Holt accepts he may not start every game after scoring his third goal as a substitute this season

The Canaries striker has made a big impact off the bench this term, and is comfortable with his role after finding himself behind Steve Morison in the pecking order
Norwich City’s Grant Holt accepts he may not start every game after scoring the winning goal as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-1 home win against QPR.

The striker gave the Canaries the victory in the 73rd minute when he forced the ball in from Wes Hoolahan’s cross, after seeing a header cleared off the line minutes earlier.

Holt has now come off the bench three times to score this season, but he has acknowledged his place alongside the other members of the squad. He told The Sun: "Of course I want to start, but in this division it is a squad game."

In the queue for a starting place he appears behind summer signing Steve Morison, who had scored in each of the three games preceding Saturday’s win and been praised for his work rate throughout the season.

"No one ever plays 11 men for the whole season — it's too physically challenging," Holt continued.

"That's why the manager brought in a lot of bodies in the summer. We have people like Zak Whitbread, Daniel Ayala, Simon Lappin and Adam Drury in the stands — that's what you need."
