Norwich manager Chris Hughton is confident his side can continue their impressive form in the League Cup against Aston Villa on Tuesday.
Norwich will welcome back former manager Paul Lambert as they look to progress to the semi-finals of the competition.
And the former Newcastle boss believes it is important for the team to keep their current momentum going.
“It’s an important trophy for us and it also keeps the momentum going,” Hughton told reporters.
“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.
“We played well at their place and perhaps should have got a better result. They have good players and options, but we’re in good form at the moment, and if we can play with the confidence we have done in this run then we will give ourselves a good chance.”
Hughton’s side are currently on a 10-match unbeaten streak.
