Hughton: Norwich on right track
Norwich manager Chris Hughton is confident his side will soon find the right formula after their early-season struggles in front of goal.
The Canaries will be out to secure a place in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup when they tackle League One Doncaster at Carrow Road.
However, Hughton's men head into the tie without a victory in the Premier League, having scored just two goals in five games and with captain Grant Holt - last season's top scorer - yet to get off the mark.
Teenage striker Harry Kane, on loan from Tottenham, is set to lead the attack on Wedensday night, and Hughton is convinced the goals will come.
"It is an area we know we need to address," said the 53-year-old, appointed this summer after Paul Lambert left to take charge at Aston Villa.
"For us, it is just about getting the formula right. We have shown real good phases in the games we have played, and there is not so much wrong with our performances - but of course you can only win football matches by scoring goals.
"The main focus is addressing that, but a couple of lucky goals - a backpass from the halfway line - would be nice."
Hughton will "make wholesale changes" on Wednesday night, much as he did for the visit of Scunthorpe in the last round.
However, that is not just because the Canaries will be facing Liverpool on Saturday, when they will aim to kick-start a so-far winless Premier League campaign.
"I only do that because at this moment the squad we have allows us to do it," said Hughton, who will also give recent signings in goalkeeper Mark Bunn, midfielder Alexander Tettey and fit-again England Under-21 international Jacob Butterfield the chance to impress.
"There isn't anybody playing on Wednesday who does not have good experience and who is not a strong player," Hughton added.
"It is a game we very much want to win, and we just have to make sure we go about it in the same way as the previous round."
Kane joined the Canaries on deadline day to boost his chances of regular top-flight football after Spurs moved for United States international Clint Dempsey.
The England Under-19 forward, who missed a good chance in the closing stages after coming on as a substitute against West Ham, feels the Canaries have plenty of presence up front.
He said: "We are still creating chances. We just need to put them away and get a bit of luck. Once we get a couple, then they will just fly in.
"There is a blend and a different variety in all of us strikers here. So, whichever two of us play, we have all got goals in us."
