Football - Hughton: We want to make progress

Norwich manager Chris Hughton is eager for progress to be made at Carrow Road in the forthcoming Barclays Premier League, but admits staying in the top flight is the over-riding objective.

Hughton has made seven signings so far this summer, including £8.5million striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel from Sporting Lisbon and Gary Hooper from Celtic, but believes expectation should remain in check despite 12th and 11th-placed finishes in the last two seasons.

"We're still a club that's developing," Hughton said.

"This will be our third season back in the Premier League. We've had two very good seasons in this division, but this season - irrespective of what we've brought in - will start just as hard as last season started.

"It's still making sure we start next season's Premier League in the division - that's always the objective - but we want to make progress."
