thumbnail Hello,

The Canaries keeper was influential in his side's 2-1 victory at Carrow Road, and wants to give a good account of himself with regular No.1 John Ruddy out for three months

Norwich goalkeeper Mark Bunn says he is hoping to make the most of his run in goal, as he continues to deputise for the injured John Ruddy.

The former Blackburn Rovers man had a good performance in the 2-1 win over Sunderland, making a number of saves to help ensure all three points, particularly during an intense second half as the visitors pressed for an equaliser.

"I was delighted with my performance," Bunn told Sky Sports.

"It's good to get a couple of saves and I've got a run in the team now so I've got to take my chance.

"Yeah, I'm just delighted that we got the win in the end and that it was a good team performance."

The only disappointment for the 28-year-old was Craig Gardner's goal just before the break, which seemed to slip through the his hands and into the back of the net.

Although Bunn agreed that he might have done better with that effort, he was happy with the way he reacted and kept his nerve in the crucial second period.

"I kind of got my fingertips to it which I thought maybe I should have kept out," he admitted.

"That happens in football and I just bounced back in the second half and managed to make a few good saves."

Team-mate Anthony Pilkington was on the scoresheet for the second successive home game, and was understandably elated with another Carrow Road victory.

"I think first half we were brilliant, we passed the ball really well and we've scored two good goals," he said.

"And, you know, right at the end of the first half, we've conceded a sloppy goal and we didn't think they were in it too much.

"It's made the second half difficult and, to be fair, they've had a good go but we've shown how strong we are again."

The former Huddersfield Town midfielder revealed that Norwich is a good place to be at the moment, with confidence riding high after their recent run.

"I'm enjoying my football, you can't not playing in the Premier League," he admitted.

"It's a massive win for us and I think we're eight unbeaten now and we're picking up a lot of points.

"We're going in the right direction now and it's a good place to be at the moment."

After gathering 16 points from a possible 24, Pilkington thinks that the Canaries can now start to set their sights a little higher in the league.

"I think if we keep playing the way we are, we'll look towards the top of the table," he added.

"Obviously, not, you know, Europe or anything like that but mid-table I think will be a good strong finish for us."
