Norwich City took another big steps towards promotion back to the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, as they beat Derby County 1-0 at Pride Park.
Victory over the Rams means that Daniel Farke’s side now need just one win from their remaining five league games to confirm an immediate promotion back to the top-flight of English football.
Kieran Dowell’s stunning free kick midway through the first-half was enough to secure all three points for the Canaries, putting them to within touching distance of the promised land.
At the other end of the park however, one man who produced a particularly impressive performance on Saturday, was Grant Hanley.
Not for the first time this season, the Norwich captain made a huge contribution to his side’s success, with a string of key challenges, blocks and clearances to help keep the Derby attack at bay across the course of the 90 minutes as the hosts put a considerable on the league leaders.
That is something that did not go unnoticed amongst a number of Norwich fans, with many keen to pay tribute to Hanley as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Canaries supporters had to say.
Grant Hanley deserves a medal after that performance. Immense #ncfc

Scruffy 2nd half but 3 points is 3 points. Hanley was by far the MOTM. 2 points needed now with 5 games left #NCFC
