Norwich City’s success or failure at Upton Park this evening could have season-defining repercussions with several of the Canaries’ relegation rivals also in action.

Three points in the east end could catapult Chris Hughton’s men into the top half of the table, allaying fears the remaining 12 games of the season could be the kind of struggle many envisaged.

However, defeat at the Hammers, coupled with wins for Cardiff (at home to Villa), West Brom (at home to Chelsea – admittedly unlikely), and Hull (at home to Southampton) could see Norwich drop into the relegation zone and deeper into the mire.

Hughton has always just about managed to keep Norwich’s head above water this season and his players have shown an ability to get results when they need them most.

He will be hoping for similar this evening and their cause has of course been helped by Andy Carroll’s suspension after the FA upheld his three-match suspension for clashing with Swansea defender Chico Flores.

Kevin Nolan has shown that he is able to step into the void with four goals in his last two games but, after shackling Manchester City at the weekend, messrs Sebastien Bassong and Joseph Yobo, will be confident of another shut-out.

It promises to be an interesting evening and you can follow all the action here at www.pinkun.com/live

  • There is no way we will stay up, hughton s cautious approach in no good, we have averaged 1 point a game which is relegation form, are last 4 games against top 4 , so our season is 8 games to achieve 15 points, almost 2 points a game which is top 5 form, so just not possible, cardiff, west brom, hull, fulham , sunderland all play each other which means points will be gained on norwich
