The Scotland international was again a creative influence during the Canariesâ€™ best spells following his impressive debut at MK Dons prior to the weekend, and Hughton is convinced he can inflict plenty of damage on Premier League defences.
â€śWe played Robert in a position he has played before and he did it very well,â€ť Hughton told the Pink 'Un. â€śPredominantly in his career he would have played more games on the right-hand side of midfield, but it was something I wanted to have a look at and a new shape.
"I was delighted. I know he can play that role because he is a good player and he has played there before â€“ he is a player that likes to get on the ball but he will work for the team as well in that position. Certainly he is a player that can play there for us.â€ť
