Trouble at home for Hodgson


West Brom boss Roy Hodgson has no doubt his side are in a relegation battle - and that their results at home must improve if they are to emerge from it unscathed.

Albion were beaten 2-1 by Norwich at The Hawthorns on Saturday - their third straight loss in the league and seventh in the 11 top-flight fixtures at their own ground this term, during which they have managed to score just eight goals.

That record is concerning Hodgson, who said: "I've had lots of times in my career when I've had long runs of away defeats, but I don't know if I can remember seven home defeats. It is a very negative statistic."
