What key fixtures do Norwich have left in 2013?

Norwich City

Chris Hughton's side have struggled so far this season and may be in another relegation battle, but what stands in their way before the end of the year?

Norwich's third season in the Premier League has been tough going but they have a number of winnable fixtures before the start of 2014. Here they are.

Crystal Palace (H) 30th NovemberThe Canaries next game is against another struggling side but Palace picked up their first away win against Hull and with Tony Pulis taking charge for the first time, it won’t be an easy afternoon for Hughton’s side.

West Brom (A) 7th December – To stay up, you need to be picking up points on the road and they have a good chance of doing that at the Hawthorns. Albion have been hit and miss so far this season so Hughton will be hoping that they turn up on a poor day for Steve Clarke’s men.

Swansea (H) 15th December – The Swans will be tough opponents but Norwich need to be beating mid-table and lower half teams at Carrow Road to make sure they aren’t hosting Championship football next season.

Sunderland (A) 21st December – Gustavo Poyet has managed to pick up wins in both of his home games in charge of the Black Cats so far, but Hughton will be hoping that won’t be the case when the Canaries travel to the Stadium of Light.

Fulham (H) 26th December – Martin Jol's side are also having a poor campaign and this could be a six-pointer on Boxing Day. Norwich will be favourites though being the home side and should have enough to take all three points.
