Norwich City manager Chris Hughton:
"After Saturday we made a decision that we wanted to go strong.
"What there are is lads who need games, three out of my back four haven't play regularly - Martin Olsson, Seb (Bassong) and Ryan Bennett - and they need the games and I thought they came through it very well.
"It was good for those who got 90 minutes under their belt, they needed it.
"If you look at the side we put out it was strong enough and had a fair amount of intent in that team."
Bury manager Kevin Blackwell:
"The Norwich crowd gave everyone of our players a standing ovation at the end.
"It was a game and half and their goalkeeper has got man of the match. He's pulled off save after save and we've hit the bar and the post and had two strong penalty shouts.
"I'm proud of the players. It was a good performance.
"How we played was key, some of the Norwich players said when they came off the pitch that we play some good stuff so I'm pleased with the players overall."
