Chris Hughton backs Luciano Becchio to find lift-off in box as Norwich draw with Fulham
Norwich 0 Fulham 0
Monday 11 February 2013
Norwich manager Chris Hughton has every confidence new striker Luciano Becchio, who made his first start in the 0-0 draw with Fulham, will open his account sooner rather than later – with help from his team-mates.
"Becchio is a strong player and good in the air, someone who relies on the service," Hughton said. "If he gets that in and around the box, he can score."
Norwich also brought in Sierra Leone forward Kei Kamara during the January window, with international clearance on a loan move from US side Sporting Kansas having come through early last week.
While the 28-year-old needs some time to work on his match fitness, the signs are positive after an energetic late cameo role against Fulham.
"I liked what I saw and he certainly will give us a different dimension," Hughton said.
