Huckerby delights Grant

07 April 2007 07:48
Norwich City manager Peter Grant believes Darren Huckerby is one of the best players in the Championship after watching the mercurial winger score once and create another goal as the Canaries won 2-1 at relegation-threatened Hull City. Huckerby headed home the opening goal six minutes before the interval and then crossed for Dickson Etuhu to grab the second, as Grant's side secured only their fifth away victory of the campaign. Grant said: "If we're organised and defend properly then we've got a match-winner in Darren Huckerby. "There are a lot of very good players in this division and Darren is up there with the best of them. "He's got that little bit of quality, he's a match-winner and you'll go far to find someone who can excite and frustrate you in the same moment. "I questioned him a few weeks ago after the Wolves game when he was magic, but his final ball was poor. Now he's answered me superbly."
