Norwich boss Hughton confident ahead of Swansea clash

The Canaries manager says his side were given a "big lift" after defeating West Brom, while he was also delighted to see club captain Sebastien Bassong sign a new deal
Chris Hughton says his Norwich City side are building momentum as they go in search of back-to-back Premier League wins for just the second time this year.

The Canaries welcome Swansea City to Carrow Road on Sunday and will be in buoyant mood following the 2-0 win at West Brom last week.

14/1 Norwich City are 14/1 with bet365 to beat Swansea 2-0
Hughton was under pressure after a 7-0 thrashing at Manchester City last month, but a run of three wins in their last five league fixtures has improved the mood at Norwich.

"The manner in which we won the West Brom game has given us a big lift," Hughton said. "We are looking at this weekend's game against Swansea as a chance to get back-to-back wins."

Hughton was pleased that captain Sebastien Bassong had opted to pen a new deal and also revealed that both Robert Snodgrass and Ricky van Wolfswinkel are nearing a return.

"On Sebastien Bassong's new contract, we're absolutely delighted," he added. "The fact he's put to paper shows what the club means to him.

"Ricky van Wolfswinkel has come through his training sessions this week - we'll assess him to see if he can make this weekend's game.

"Robert Snodgrass is making really good progress - he has an outside chance of making the Sunderland game [on December 21]."
