Chris Hughton: Changing formation in the hunt for goals

Chris Hughton: Changing formation in the hunt for goals

Hughton has tried to rectify the situation in recent weeks by playing two strikers, and although the change worked against Everton, his charges were frustrated by Southampton on Saturday.

"I am not going to say that we have been brilliant in front of goal because the stats haven't showed that," Hughton said.

"But we are working hard on it. In the last two games, I have played two up front to try to get those opportunities and against Everton we scored twice.

"We were up against a good side - they have shown that in their last couple of games, even their last couple of away games, playing well at Old Trafford and at Newcastle.

"In the end, we had to makes sure we didn't lose the game but I thought that we had the better chances."

One of those chances against Southampton came from a penalty when Grant Holt's spot-kick was saved by Artur Boruc.

But the Canaries manager expects Holt to bounce back from the disappointment.

Hughton added: "He'll be disappointed because he wants to score goals and it's one less opportunity.

"But he has been around too long and taken - and missed - too many penalties to let it affect him."

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
