The Canaries are currently on a 10-game unbeaten run and face Aston Villa at Carrow Road in the quarter-final of Capital One Cup on Tuesday.

And Hughton is keen to keep the spirit high at Norwich by progressing further in the competition.

"It's an important trophy for us and it also keeps the momentum going," Hughton said.

"When you're on a run you don't want the run to finish, and we've used this competition very well in the games that we've played, and we hope we can take that into tomorrow's game.

"We're at home, and Villa are also in good form. They're a young, very energetic team, and we've seen the energy they put into games.

"We played well at their place and perhaps should have got a better result. They have good players and options, but we're in good form at the moment, and if we can play with the confidence we have done in this run then we will give ourselves a good chance."
