Boss welcomes confidence booster
Chris Hughton hopes Norwich's Capital One Cup success can help them kick-start their Premier League campaign against Liverpool.
The Canaries paid tribute to former manager John Bond, who has died aged 79, with a minute's silence before kick-off in Wednesday's third round tie against Doncaster Rovers, and then booked their place in the fourth round with a 1-0 victory. Norway midfielder Alexander Tettey marked his debut by scoring the game's only goal with a fine strike midway through the first-half to set up a home clash with Tottenham. City will now look to take confidence from the result as they seek to record their first top-flight victory under Hughton when Liverpool come to Norfolk on Saturday. "Winning football matches is a nice habit for a club like us, it is difficult to win lots of games because of the division we are playing in," said Hughton. "You hope there is a feel-good factor you can go from one game to the next, and all of our efforts will now be on trying to get a win on Saturday." Hughton felt last night's win was a fitting tribute to Bond, who was in charge for a seven-season spell from the mid-1970s, leading the Norfolk club to the League Cup final. "When I came to this club in the summer, the first name you think of as former managers is John Bond. If I am able to be at this club anywhere near as long as John was, then I would be incredibly lucky. He will be thought of very fondly by a lot of people."
