Norwich striker Grant Holt believes Saturday's 1-0 victory over Arsenal will provide them with a platform to climb the Premier League table.
Holt netted the winner in the 19th minute at Carrow Road as the Canaries secured their first league win under Chris Hughton.
"Everyone had been looking at the negatives from the games against Liverpool and Chelsea, but we had played well in those matches," Holt said.
"It is all about hard work and we have been putting the same endeavour in but not getting the rewards. We will take a lot from this result.
"No-one will have given us a chance of winning this and wrote us off too easily.
"We needed it and it has taken a while for us to wait for the performance and the win.
"We have to realise that is the only way we are going to get results in this division. If we keep doing it, then we will be all right."
