The Canaries have gone nine games without a win to slip to within six points of the Premier League drop zone.

A reversal in fortune is required if the club are to avoid being dragged into a basement battle.

Hughton concedes as much and is looking for his side to hit the fabled 40-point mark as quickly as possible, with it time for his players to dig deep and grind out results.

He said: "We have got 12 games left and, whichever way we get the points, we have to get them.

"There is only one priority and target - to make sure we are in this league next season.

"We went through a difficult period at the beginning of the season, then a very good period where we didn't lose for 10 games, and now we are finding wins that little bit harder.

"All you hope is to rectify that by doing the work on the training pitch. We are working on all aspects."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
