Martin learning from hitman Holt

Norwich striker Chris Martin says he is learning from the experience of playing alongside Grant Holt.

Martin, 20, has scored five times this season and had a big hand in the second goal in the 3-1 win at Stockport.

Martin says Holt, who scored a brace at Edgley Park, is the perfect player to have alongside him.

"He gives a 100% every game, he's good to play with and learn off, hopefully I'll learn as much as I can from him," he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"The positions he gets himself in, and how many goals he scores as well, it's massive for us, and for the team.


"I think he's on 12 already, that's been a massive help for us and obviously he played a big part in us winning this game."

Under Paul Lambert's management Martin is enjoying his first consistent run in the Norwich team for two years, having fallen out of favour with former boss Glenn Roeder.

And after witnessing the team's third away win of the season, in a match where they did not perform well, Martin says it is a good sign.

"We always fancy ourselves to score goals with the attacking force that we've got, and I think we're confident coming into every game," he said.

"But we definitely didn't play our best today, we showed that when we're not playing well we stick together, get around each other and put in a battling performance."

The win leaves Norwich just four points off second-placed Charlton, but Martin is not getting too excited just yet.

"We just need to concentrate on our results, keep winning games and I'm sure we'll keep going up the league," he added.

"We can't rely on other teams to slip up, we have to keep winning games ourselves."
