Norwich boss Hughton delighted with Tettey form

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is delighted with the form of Alex Tettey.

Tettey blundered for one of Chelsea's goals on Sunday, but Hughton insists it was just a blip.

"Alex is absolutely key in that role because it does give Leroy and Jon a bit more of a licence, Jon (Howson) perhaps more so in that respect, because as we all know he has a great energy to drive forward," he told the Pink 'Un. "Knowing Alex is there and doing what he does best frees Jonny to play a little bit off the shape. It worked (at Stoke) and its always a little bit easier to talk about it when it works.

"Alex had played a lot of games last season and not just that but a lot of games consecutively which perhaps he had not done before in his career. He picked up a little injury problem that knocked him back and he found it a little bit difficult to get back into a rhythm.

"Over the summer we went out and brought in other options and for me it is trying to get the right mix but he is a very good athlete. He trains well every day and he is always good when he has a little bit of momentum in his game."
