Monday 08 April 2013
Chris Hughton admits his Norwich City side will be looking over their shoulders as well as concentrating on their own performances in the relegation dogfight after a 2-2 home draw with Swansea on Saturday that leaves them just four points above the drop zone.
The Canaries face difficult trips to Arsenal, Manchester City and Stoke in the final weeks of the campaign and will hope to pick up points at home to Reading, Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion.
“All the teams around us are capable of winning games so we need to make sure we get enough points from the last games to make sure we’re okay,” Hughton said.
“We wanted a win but nothing changes, we still have to get enough points from the six remaining matches to make sure we’re secure.”
