Alex Neil remains positive Norwich can stay up and is targeting a key run of fixtures starting in March which will define their season.
The Canaries travel to Leicester City on Saturday looking to avoid a seventh defeat in eight league matches, a run of results which has left the club hovering just outside the relegation zone.
Neil believes Norwich have what it takes to defeat the Premier League leaders but admits it will be a run of five matches, starting with a trip to West Brom on March 19 that will likely decide whether they avoid the drop.
During that run the Norfolk outfit face Albion, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Watford and Sunderland, and while Neil admits those fixtures will be key, he wants his players to focus on the next four matches, the outcome of which will prove equally important.
“After the Man City game later this month, we’ve got a group of matches that are going to be really important,” he told the Norwich website.
“In between then, we’ve got four big matches that we need to take points from and that starts on Saturday.
“If we can pick points up, then we can go into this bulk of games with good points on the board and in a healthy position.”
After Saturday’s clash with Leicester, Norwich face Chelsea, Swansea and Manchester City.
