The 25-year-old then sealed the win for Norwich when he slotted home Leroy Fer's tremendous pass with just five minutes of extra-time remaining leaving Hughton not only pleased with his performance but also with his fitness.
"He is a finisher," the Norwich boss said of his summer signing.
"I'm probably as delighted that he has got 120 minutes under his belt than I am with the goals. He is used to scoring but with all strikers it is about the service they get and showing a little bit of quality when they can.
"Both goals showed great movement, a super ball from Leroy Fer for the third. Even in that second half of extra time I was looking at how he was running and he was fine."
