Grant Holt backed to boost goal haul

Norwich City striker Grant HoltNorwich City boss Chris Hughton insists that he has no worries with Grant Holt and believes he will start scoring soon.

Holt has yet to register for Norwich this season, who are yet to win a game under Hughton this term. Norwich have actually only scored twice in their opening four games, but Hughton thinks Holt – who scored 17 last season – will soon show his worth to the team. Hughton told Sky Sports:

“I think he started slowly last year and went on to score goals and I am quite sure that will be the case again. He’s been focused on games and in training and I’ve not seen any lack of hunger. He’s got the same desire and commitment. He will be disappointed he’s not scored yet because he’s a striker. He will work hard to put it right.”

Norwich have drawn three of their opening four Premier League games this season, and the Norwich boss will be desperate for Holt to regain some of his form from last season to boost his team’s goal tally and finally start winning games. Norwich travel to Newcastle on Sunday, and Hughton will be keen to take some points off his old employers.
