Norwich midfielder David Fox believes the club's first win of the season was a 'weight off their shoulders' but stressed they now need to follow that up with a home victory.
The Canaries grabbed their first Premier League away win in 17 years last weekend with a 2-1 victory over Bolton.
It was the newly promoted side's first three points of the season after two draws and two defeats in their opening four games.
Paul Lambert's men now face Sunderland at Carrow Road and, while Fox admits the players have been boosted by last week's win, it will mean little if they do not follow it up with a victory on Monday.
"Now we have got that win under our belts, which our performances have deserved, the lads are a lot more relaxed and there is a lot better atmosphere around the place," the 27-year-old told the club's official website.
"It just shows there is nothing to fear now we have got that weight off our shoulders, we can go and turn those good performances into three points which we need.
"We want to put down a marker on Monday and certainly try to get three points, because we need good results at home.
"We are capable of winning away from home, we proved that last year, so hopefully we can get that home form right, then that should see us start to progress."
