Stoke City No2 Dave Kemp has told fans to keep calm as they battle against the drop.

A near full house is expected when Stoke take on fellow strugglers Norwich on Saturday knowing victory will all but mathematically guarantee a sixth season in the top flight.

"It's important the fans don't get impatient," said Kemp.

"It would be great to be 5-0 up at half-time, but if not, don't panic because we are quite capable of winning the game late on."
