Chris Hughton: Our last two results have lifted everybody

Chris Hughton has urged Norwich to build on their strong form by completing their mastery of north London with victory over Tottenham on Wednesday night.

The Canaries host Spurs in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup buoyed after securing four points from their last two Barclays Premier League outings.

Ten days ago they sprang the upset of the season so far by defeating Arsenal 1-0 and Hughton hopes they will continue fighting for every result.

"There aren't many teams that will win this competition so if you have an opportunity to progress it's a big plus for the club," he said.

"It's a massive game and we want to make progress in the Capital One Cup. We've had some lows this season, but the morale has always been good.

"We accept what we are as a club and accept that nothing will come to us easily. We have to fight for what we get.

"But we are in good form at the moment with a win and draw from our last two games lifting everybody."

Norwich drew 1-1 at White Hart Lane last month and Hughton admits they have no fear of Spurs, even if they have shown a marked improvement in recent weeks.

"Tottenham are a wonderful club that play a fabulous brand of football," he said.

"They're in great form and have been finding greater consistency.

"We don't know what side they will put out and they're perhaps in a different place now compared to then.

"Their season is going well now. They have a lot of quality in the team.

"But the fact we gave a good account of ourselves at White Hart Lane gives us confidence that we will do ok tomorrow.

"We're at home and we must make sure we'll give our crowd plenty to cheer about."

Norwich sit three points clear of relegation but Hughton believes they are in a false position.

"We know where we went wrong in the poor performances we've had, we leaked goals and that doesn't do us any favours," he said.

"Most managers will say they should have more points but I genuinely feel that our performances have warranted better outcomes and that gives us confidence.

"If you can beat Arsenal at Carrow Road that gives you confidence. Against Villa on Saturday it should have been a winning performance."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
