Norwich City boss Chris Hughton isn't panicking over their slow start to the season.

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton isn't panicking over their slow start to the season.

After their stalemate with West Ham United, the Canaries must now pick themselves up for a trip to Hughton's former club Newcastle next weekend, which is the start of a run of tough fixtures.

"We will certainly make sure the players are very aware of what the positives are," said Hughton, who replaced Paul Lambert in the summer.

"It was a clean sheet against a side who you can see scoring goals because of the way they play with strong, physical players.

"You have to be able to cope with that and match it, which we did.

"Some of our possession in the middle of the park was very good with Bradley Johnson and Jonny Howson, and we kept probing.

"If we keep doing that and do that for long enough, then the results will come."
