Hughton stresses Norwich not safe from relegation yet

Norwich boss Chris Hughton wants his players to focus on not getting dragged down into a relegation scrap.

The Canaries currently have an eight-point cushion between themselves and the drop zone with 10 games to go, but they have only recorded one victory in their last 11 league games.

"It has been shown by QPR's win (last week) and Reading had also recently been on their best run of the season, that what you have is a group of teams around us and below us which can all win games", said Hughton.

"You only have to have one of them put a run together, which they are all capable of doing. Can you afford to relax? Absolutely you can't.

"There are too many stories, even in recent seasons, of clubs which have been in good positions that eventually have gone down.

"When you are playing against teams around where you are in the league, they are games you do not want to lose.

"We have 10 games left and we need to make sure we get the required points from those in whatever fashion we do it.

"It is quite obvious there are averages over the season, most look at the 40 point mark, but there are going to be seasons where it is higher than that, and also lower than that.

"First and foremost though, it is about getting points in the next game."
