Norwich managed a stunning 1-0 win over Hull City that helped them move away from the relegation zone and also ease the pressure from manager Chris Hughton. The club has been coming under intense pressure from the fans to get rid of manager Hughton, who has the experience of working at several clubs in recent years. The team has been finding it very hard to score goals and it has been partly because of the form of summer signing Ricky Van Wolfswinkel, who was brought to the club for a record £ 8.5 million. However, he has not scored in the last 14 matches.

His first goal for the club came on the opening day of the season. Scoring goals has been a problem despite the presence of Gary Hooper, who was brought from Celtic for a large fee. The former Celtic man had scored a lot of goals with the Scottish outfit, but he has been struggling for form in the Premier league. However, he started the match alongside Wolfswinkel and played a major role in the victory. Both strikers, however, did not get on the scoresheet since it was Bennett who scored the winner in the 87th minute.

He managed to convert the corner from Robert Snodgrass to give massive three points for the home team.

“I’m very conscious that I’d like to play two up front, I’d like to play a midfield attacking schemer, I’d like to play two wide players that can both tuck in and score goals. The unfortunate thing is you can’t do all of them. It’s trying to get the balances right. Of course it’s [Wolfswinkel form] a concern. He’s someone who is used to scoring goals. He’s playing in a different league — sometimes that takes a little bit longer,” said Hughton after the Hull victory.
