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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
