Hughton receives injury boosts

4 October 2013 21:31

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has received a number of injury boosts prior to his men meeting Chelsea on Sunday.

The 54-year-old will see his team gunning for their third victory in a row in all competitions, following a strong 1-0 win away from home against Stoke City last weekend.

The fixture saw midfielder Jonny Howson put the visitors ahead in the first half before the team ground out an impressive defensive showing to keep their hosts out.

But while they were without Nathan Redmond and Javier Garrido in that match, they are just two of a number likely to come back this weekend, much to Hughton's delight.

"They've come through fitness tests in the last two days and they're available, which is good news," he said.

"Ricky (van Wolfswinkel) had to miss training earlier in the week, but he trained today and will be fine.

"Seb (Bassong) also trained today (Friday) so we'll assess him again tomorrow, but at the moment we're hoping he's going to come through."

And while the manager will be well aware of the threat that Chelsea will pose, he is excited to pit his team against Jose Mourinho's side.

“I'm looking forward to the challenge of our team playing against Chelsea, with the array of talent and options that they have," he added. "These are the games that you have to look forward to in the Premier League."
