Kamara backs Hughton era
Chris Hughton is the right man to lead Norwich but he needs to secure his first win and quickly, according to pundit Chris Kamara.
The former Newcastle manager was drafted in by the Canaries' board in the summer to continue the impressive job Paul Lambert performed in guiding the club from League One to the Premier League in successive seasons before securing a mid-table top-flight finish last term. However, following an opening day 5-0 drubbing at Fulham, the Canaries have managed draws against QPR, Tottenham and West Ham. And, while they have improved, Kamara feels Hughton could do with a win to get the team up and running in the new era. Norwich face a difficult trip to Newcastle on Sunday, while Kamara is looking towards the visit of League One Doncaster in the Capital One Cup next Wednesday as the ideal chance to get off the mark if they fail to do so on Tyneside. "Even though Norwich are playing well at the minute they are not winning games and that is obviously the main priority for Chris and for the club," said Kamara in the Sports Review. "Chris will need to make sure that everyone is focused for the game against Doncaster because that is an important game for the club given the way the season has gone so far. "Given what has happened there won't even be a chance for Chris to think that he could rest any players in the game against Doncaster. "In many ways he might not want to anyway because, when you have a start like they have, the most important thing you can do is to try and get some wins and build some momentum. "If Norwich are going to stay in the Premier League this year Carrow Road is going to need to be a place where they can pick up plenty of points and so a win against Doncaster would get them started on that."
