That was February 2004 in the Third Division. Nearly nine years on, Holt is at Norwich City playing Premier League football and has been mentioned as a candidate for England. Rickie Lambert, his old Rochdale strike partner, is in the top-flight too, with Southampton, and tonight they meet at St Mary's.

"They are on the back of a good win at Queens Park Rangers, and I think they took that into the game against Newcastle, so it will be a tough one," said Hughton.
