Norwich City go in to their next home game against Southampton this Saturday knowing that three points would be a major step closer to securing their safety.

Having lost their last game away to Manchester United, Norwich City are currently sitting in 13th in the Premier League with everything left to play for. After losing away to Fulham 4-0 at the start of the campaign, Norwich have proved the critics wrong yet again this season, as they prove they can compete amongst the best teams in the league.

With home wins against the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Stoke and Everton, Norwich have created a fortress at their ground Carrow Road, only losing their three times this season. Their away record is something to worry about though, only winning just the once on their travels, and losing seven games.

Manager Chris Hughton seems optimistic that his team can reach the safety mark of 40 points.

Hughton believes home form will be key to Norwich staying in the Premier League for a third consecutive season – and sees Saturday's clash with Southampton as an opportunity to put distance between themselves and the teams in the bottom three.  

The Canaries manager said: "When you’re playing against teams who are around where you are in terms of league position, they are of course games that you don’t want to lose.

"What’s more important for us is that it’s a home game, and for clubs like ourselves, we know that the success of our season will be based around the home form.

"It’s been good this season and that’s something we need to continue."
