Hughton calls for endeavour

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has urged his players to show 'belief and confidence' in their fight against Premier League relegation.

A 2-2 draw against Swansea City on Saturday meant the Carrow Road club failed to properly distance themselves from the drop zone.

And, with Aston Villa defeating Stoke City, Hughton recognises it is becoming very tight at the bottom of the table.

"It is getting tough," the Norwich boss told Sky Sports. "But we know all the teams around where we are are all capable of winning football matches.

"We have to make sure that in this final six games of the season, of which three are at home, we get enough points.

"And if we show enough belief and confidence, like we did today in good phases, then we will have done enough."

Michu had given Swansea the lead before Norwich roared back either side of half-time through Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner only for Luke Moore to equalise.

Depending on results on Sunday, Norwich could consequently find themselves just two points clear of the relegation places.

But Hughton is continuing his belief that home form could save his side ahead of games against fellow strugglers Reading and Villa as well as West Bromwich Albion.

And with tricky away trips to Arsenal, sinking Stoke City and a final day visit to Manchester City also on the horizon, Hughton said: "Whether it is this stage of the season or the start of the season, you are always looking at your home form.

"We are tough to beat here. We have got three very difficult games away from home. Whether it will come to our home form, we will have to see."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
