Chris Hughton congratulates Paul Lambert on Villa's 1-0 win

The Canaries lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa on Saturday, which led to chants of "Hughton, sort it out" around Carrow Road.

They quickly have a chance to bounce back when they travel to take on Watford in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

"It was disappointing, but this is a very quick opportunity to get back in to football," Hughton said. "We want to get back to winning ways there."

One of City's main problems has been scoring goals, despite the arrival of a battery of new strikers in Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Gary Hooper and Johan Elmander.

Nathan Redmond's winner against Southampton last month is the only goal the Canaries have scored in their last four league games.

Midfielder Jonny Howson is confident the goal drought will end soon.

"We need to address that, yes, but these things happen," the former Leeds man told Canaries Player.

"It is a long season, we will have our ups and downs, but it's a good group we have here so we will keep working hard and it won't affect the team.

"Whenever you have had a defeat you want to put it right as soon as possible and it helps having a game so soon after.

"Tuesday will be tough going to Watford, they have some good players and they are a good team, but we will go there looking to do well."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
