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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
