The Canaries sit one place above the relegation zone and four points clear of 18th-place Sunderland following their key 3-2 triumph over Newcastle last weekend.

Palace are only three points better off than Norwich ahead of Saturday’s meeting and Neil is keen to see his men cut the gap.

The Carrow Road side are now unbeaten in three league outings and are looking to secure a third-successive victory against the fellow strugglers.

Neil believes they are starting to pick up results at the right time as they bid to avoid an immediate return to the Championship.

He said: “We have to be aware that other teams have a game in hand but we have an opportunity. Palace are three points ahead of us so we need to go and attack them at their place.

“All we have done is give ourselves a chance now because if we had lost the Newcastle game then it was going to be really tough for us. You can talk about momentum, and we might have it now, but three weeks ago people were not saying that to me so it just shows how quickly it can swing around in football.

“Myself and the team are fully aware of that, which is why if we don’t perform or don’t win at Crystal Palace then the same questions will be getting asked again.”

He added: “We have to make sure we go there and take something from it because Sunderland in the following game will be even bigger again. There is a huge amount of work to be done.”
