Norwich manager Nigel Worthington has paid tribute to striker Robert Earnshaw.Norwich manager Nigel Worthington has praised striker Robert Earnshaw after he scored his first goals for the club.
The Welshman, who moved to Carrow Road from West Brom on transfer deadline day, found the back of the net twice in The Canaries' 3-0 victory over Brighton on Tuesday, only his third appearance for the club.
Earnshaw struggled to break into The Baggies' team this season, managing just one goal in The Premiership, but Worthington believes he has the potential to become a very influential player for City.
"We know his qualities," he told Sky Sports News. "He can score goals and he's lively.
"We've just got to be patient and give him the time to get used to playing with other players.
"I saw two back flips (against Brighton), which was nice."
