Norwich are just four points above the Premier League drop-zone after picking up just two wins from their last 15 matches.

They are about to embark on a crucial run of fixtures against fellow strugglers, starting with Saturday's visit of Sunderland, while they also face Swansea, West Brom and Fulham in the next few weeks.

With their final four games coming against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, Hughton feels Norwich need to go for the jugular against their relegation rivals.

When asked about the home clash with Sunderland, he said: "There is no doubt that the fact it is against a team around us makes it a bigger game.

"One because we need to the points ourselves, and it's points you don't want Sunderland to get too.

"We haven't conceded that many goals at Carrow Road, but what we have got to be able to do is be positive enough to make sure that we can score the goals that we need to win."

Norwich have claimed some crucial points in front of their own fans, including last month's upset win over Tottenham, and Hughton believes home form will be crucial in the closing months.

"Sunderland is a big game for us, particularly with the season coming to the last eight games," he said.

"We need to make sure that we are picking up the points that we need, and it needs to start with the next game, particularly when it is a home game.

"The results and performances have been good at home."
