'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hughton Praises Michael Turner



Norwich City boss Chris Hughton praised Michael Turner following the 1-0 win over Arsenal - which he feels will help him to overcome a difficult start to his Carrow Road career.

Turner`s previous two starts were the 5-0 drubbing at Fulham and the 5-2 defeat to Liverpool, games in which Turner hardly had his finest hour.

'It's been a little bit hit and miss for him since he come,' Hughton told BBC Radio Norfolk.

'But the reason we brought him in was his experience. And we needed that.'

'He was off the back of having a long run of games at Sunderland in the second half of last season. He missed a good chunk of pre-season,' added Hughton.

'I don't like to single anybody out but I'm really pleased for Michael.'

Our first victory of the season came courtesy of Grant Holt`s 3rd goal in 3 games, but despite Holt seemingly making the lone striking birth his own; Hughton has called for the other strikers to not be too disappointed in their lack of first team action.

'It's a formation I like. But you need time,' he said.

'When I came here we had five strikers. Just because I've gone that way doesn't mean the good quality strikers we have at this club won't get a look in.

'It's about trying to get a given formation for any game. The only right formation is the one that we win with.'
