Chris Hughton: Massive game for Norwich boss against Aston Villa

The reverse left the Canaries six points above the Premier League relegation zone with three matches remaining and Hughton concedes it is a "nervy time".

Since mid-December, Norwich have won just two league games and their demise arguably traces back to a 4-1 Capital One Cup loss to Villa at Carrow Road that ended a 10-game run without defeat.

Hughton, however, is adamant that match will not be a factor for the return visit of Villa and former Norwich boss Paul Lambert.

"It's a massive game for us because of the fact we are playing a team around us, so there is a little more significance in the game," said Hughton.

"As for the game back in December, I don't think it has any bearing on the one coming up.

"You might have seen the away game (a 1-1 draw at Villa in October). I don't think there is anybody who saw that who didn't think we were the better team on that day, so the cup game is irrelevant.

"Regardless, it's a tough game at this stage of the season whoever it is against."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
