Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is confident Ricky van Wolfswinkel will prove himself Premier League class.

Van Wolfswinkel has failed to add to his solitary goal scored on the opening day of the season.

“Ricky is someone used to scoring goals and that was an outstanding save because from the angle I was we thought it was in,” he said. “It didn’t happen for him in front of goal and maybe there were one or two occasions when he could have got across the keeper but it was really important for him to get 90 minutes under his belt," said Hughton.

“We know he has missed some three months, which is a fair time to be out and it is disappointing for him after such a good start with a fine goal on the first day.”
