City boss seeks to keep moving forward
Chris Hughton will not be setting any targets for his Norwich squad next season other than Premier League stability.
The Canaries exceeded expectations last season under Paul Lambert, who guided them to 12th place in the Barclays Premier League. Following Lambert's departure to take over at Aston Villa, former Newcastle and Birmingham manager Hughton has been charged with continuing the momentum which has taken the Norfolk club from npower League One to the top flight in successive seasons. "Every season is a tough season and we will be one of a group of eight to 10 teams whose biggest priority will be sustaining Premier League status, but you never know what is possible," Hughton said. "It was shown here last season in what the team was able to achieve, which surprised a lot of people, as did Swansea. However, it is never a good thing to put targets at the beginning of the season, because you never know how it is going to go. "Ultimately, though, all we want to do is make sure we sustain the progress the club has made and see where it takes us."
