The Canaries take on Aston Villa in the quarter-finals on Tuesday and will be confident of getting a result on home turf.
Hughton’s side are currently unbeaten in ten games and he believes that the momentum that can be gathered from cup success will help his team in all competitions:
“It’s an important trophy for us and it also keeps the momentum going,” The Norwich boss is quoted by SkySports.
“When you’re on a run you don’t want the run to finish, and we’ve used this competition very well in the games that we’ve played, and we hope we can take that into tomorrow’s game.
“We’re at home, and Villa are also in good form. They’re a young, very energetic team, and we’ve seen the energy they put into games.
Hughton also feels that his team’s 1-1 draw against the Villains in September should fill his players with confidence:
“We played well at their place and perhaps should have got a better result.”
