Norwich City manager Chris Hughton wants a game fewer in festive fixtures
Tuesday 24 December 2013
Norwich manager Chris Hughton would like to see the Christmas schedule reduced by one match.
The Canaries host Fulham and Manchester United before travelling to Crystal Palace on 1 January in a busy spell. “It’s tradition, but we’re at the stage where we are able to pull one of the games out,” he said.
"The Boxing Day match is tradition and is something we're all very much used to.
"Now we're entering a period where we play on Boxing Day, on the Saturday and then New Year's Day.
"We could pull the Saturday game out and that would leave us with the games on Boxing Day and New Year's Day, which everyone looks forward to
"I don't see a winter break happening at this particular moment, although it's something people are speaking about a lot."
