Norwich boss Hughton insists he doesn't feel pressure

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton insists he's not feeling the pressure after defeat to Everton.

The Canaries are now without a win in the league in seven matches but Hughton denied he was feeling any extra pressure.

He said: "There is always pressure on managers at whatever stage of a season.

"We want to win games and football matches. There is no greater pressure on myself at this moment than there has always been."

But with his side slipping towards the relegation zone, Hughton accepts results need to improve.

He said: "Yes, very quickly. That is something we are aware of.

"With how the league is we need to start winning games and that means scoring goals.

"I take pride from the fact in the last half-hour we made a real good game of it. We certainly didn't shy away from trying to get back into the game and having opportunities.

"I was a little bit frustrated we didn't show enough in that first period because, for the amount of possession they had, they never really tested John Ruddy to the degree they would have liked."
