Goal machine Robert Earnshaw says the Canaries are determined to put on a show for the fans tomorrow as they sign off at Carrow Road for the last time this season.

Earnshaw looks set for his second start since his three-month injury absence against Southampton, and has the added incentive of resuming his quest to break the 20-goal barrier.

First things first, though.

“It is the last home game and we are focussed on putting on a show and leaving everyone with a good feeling at the end of the season,” said Earnshaw.

“That is the aim, that's what we want we want - to put on a good performance. I will be ready and I am sure everybody else will be and we are looking forward to it.

“It's all the gaffer has been saying for the last six or seven weeks, that we have got things to play for. Every time we go out there we haven't got to disappoint and let the game ride and not put on a performance.

“We want to put on a performance every time. We want to win the game, it doesn't matter what they are doing. Everyone knows we can beat anybody so it doesn't matter if they are top of the league or going for the play-offs, we are going to try and beat them.”

Earnshaw insists ambitions is in the air at Carrow Road, where the target is the Premiership.

“I think it (the club) wants to be there,” he said. “They have tried their hardest, bringing in a new manager and he is ambitious, and it is down to what players he wants in the summer and what players he wants out.

“I know the one thing he does want to do is go to the Premier League and he is determined with that.”

Earnshaw admits he is looking with on in envy at a team that still have a good chance to squeezing into the top six for a crack at a Wembley play-off final.

“I think everybody is jealous of all the teams in the play-offs, or the top two,” he said. “I am. I want to be top of the league or I want to be second and looking to go up to the Premier League. I think this club should be going that way. Obviously we can't do it this year, but next year I think that is what the gaffer is looking for and every player from the start of the season will be looking for that.

“That is the aim - we have to aim as high as possible.”

Earnshaw has 18 goals for the season but, with two games left, can become the first Canaries player to break the 20-goal barrier since Chris Sutton bagged 25 in 1993-94.

“I have two games to do it,” said the Wales international. “I am not going to really think about it, because when I go into a game I let things happen. I feel better like that. I don't actually think about it, I just go and concentrate on trying to have fun.

“If that is my motivation everything else takes care of itself.”
