Hughton out to ease drop fears

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton wants to ease any concerns of being sucked into relegation trouble by earning a first Premier League win of 2013 against Everton on Saturday.

Last Updated: 23/02/13 at 14:38 Post Comment

The Canaries have not collected three points since defeating Wigan Athletic on 15th December and that form has seen the club drop to 14th in the table.

Four draws, including their last three successive matches, have kept Norwich six points clear of the drop zone but Hughton knows a win on Saturday at Carrow Road would be a huge boost.

"Particularly at this stage of the season, three points are so valuable," said the Norwich manager.

"That is the area that has probably been a bit disappointing for us. We have picked up some good results and, in this difficult league, a draw is generally a decent result, particularly if it is against one of the bigger teams.

"But we need to start picking up a few three points."

Hughton added: "Clubs below us at the moment are all capable of winning games and that has to be a part of your thinking.

"But a bigger part of your thinking is that we want to do well ourselves."

Norwich will wear the logo of charity Railway Children on their shirts against Everton to lend their support for sponsor Aviva's United Kingdom charity partner and raise awareness of the fact one child runs away from home every five minutes in the UK.

Along with fans, Norwich director Stephen Fry will show his support via Twitter to help raise much-needed funds for the charity.

For every tweet or retweet posted on Twitter on match day including the hashtag #1every5, Aviva will donate £1 to Railway Children.

And Hughton is delighted to be involved in the campaign: "We are proud to join long-term club sponsors Aviva in supporting Railway Children during this weekend's clash with Everton.

"As a father myself, I cannot even begin to imagine what it would be like to have your own child run away from home.

"To think that 18 children are estimated to run away from home during Saturday's game says a great deal.

"We hope to raise as much awareness as possible from the activity on the day to help support children who may run away from home."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
