Hughes side have won two and drawn one of their opening five games with their only defeats coming onto the road against Liverpool and Arsenal.

Wins over Crystal Palace and West Ham and a draw with Manchester City have raised hopes of a season without struggle and banished any doubts that fans may have had over the suitability of Hughes as a replacement for Tony Pulis.

club are also safely through to the next round of the Capital One cup after seeing off Tranmere midweek and will face Birmingham in the fourth round.

However the priority on Saturday will be three points and Hughes will be hoping that Stephen Ireland will be fit after he limped out of the midweek win over Tranmere.

The on-loan midfielder scored his first goal in almost two years in the win and Hughes will be hoping that he is fit for Saturday

Doubts also surround the fitness of defender Erik Pieters after he missed the Capital One clash while Marc Muniesa (groin) and Jamie Ness are both out.

Norwich meanwhile are sweating on the fitness of key defender Sebastien Bassong.

The former Spurs star suffered a hamstring injury in Norwich’s defeat to Aston Villa last weekend and is rated as doubtful.

Definitely out is winger Elliott Bennett after he underwent knee surgery however Ricky van Wolfswinkel is back in contention after shaking off a slight knock and is set to partner Gary Hooper up front.

Canaries boss Chris Hughton, who is set to recall John Ruddy after resting the England squad member for the game with Watford, has backed his side to find their feet and start to climb the table following a run of just one win in their opening 5 games.

“We would want to be better placed than where we are, but we also have to realise that we’re just five games into a new season and there are five teams who are only one point better off than we are,” Hughton told the club’s website.

“It’s not a time or stage to panic. You have to stay calm through this period, and have the belief and the belief in the abilities of the team. We’re very early in the season to be making judgements.”
This one kicks off at the Britannia Stadium Stoke at 13:30GMT.
