Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is hoping the goals flow for Ricky van Wolfswinkel after victory over Hull City.

Hughton was able to start both Van Wolfswinkel and Gary Hooper up front at Carrow Road for the first time.

"I’m very conscious that I’d like to play two up front, I’d like to play a midfield attacking schemer, I’d like to play two wide players that can both tuck in and score goals," said Hughton.

"The unfortunate thing is you can’t do all of them. It’s trying to get the balances right."

On Van Wolfswinkel, he said: "Of course it’s a concern. He’s someone who is used to scoring goals.

"He’s playing in a different league — sometimes that takes a little bit longer.

"The three months he’s had out certainly can’t help a new striker coming into the division. But he’s a confident player and he’s a worker — provided he continues to do that he’ll be fine.

"Possibly sometimes he can be trying to do too much, perhaps in areas where maybe he’s got to be a little bit more selfish."
