Chris Hughton: 'Sunderland win has boosted us'

Chris Hughton is confident that the much-needed win over Sunderland will boost his side for their trip to Swansea City.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has claimed that his side's 2-0 win over Sunderland last weekend will give them confidence going into Saturday's clash away to Swansea City.

Hughton said that he was expecting to see Swansea attack his side more than they did against Arsenal, but believes that his team have the ability to compete.

"There is always a lift when you get a positive result, like we did against Sunderland," he told the club's official website. "We need to make sure we take that into the next game.

"Swansea played very well at Arsenal. We would expect them to play a bit more expansive. We have fared well against them in the past couple of seasons and hopefully we can use that."

The win moved Norwich past the 30-point mark and into 14th in the Premier League table.
