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.
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."
