Simon Lappin is hoping that a successful loan spell at Motherwell will help him win over Glenn Roeder.
The midfielder joined Norwich from St Mirren in January 2007, but has fallen out of favour at Carrow Road since Roeder took the reins back in October.
As a result of his lack of first-team activity in England, the Scot took the decision to move back north of the border on transfer deadline day as he moved to Motherwell on loan for the remainder of the season.
He has performed admirably back in his homeland, and even grabbed the winner for the Well against Celtic at Parkhead on Saturday.
Despite his frustrations with the Canaries, he is refusing to turn his back on the club and remains determined to silence his Carrow Road critics.
"I worked hard to win a transfer to England but things didn't quite happen for me this season and I felt it would be best to come up here on loan and get some first-team football under my belt with Motherwell," he said.
"I knew before I returned to Scotland that Mark McGhee had the team playing well and had an attacking approach to his tactics.
"That was an important factor for me and hopefully I can do a good job while I'm up here.
"If I perform well and help Motherwell to be successful then it won't do my chances at Norwich any harm."
