Cameron Jerome is pledging to fire Norwich City back to the Premier League.

The Canaries' hitman has plundered five goals in 10 Championship games and was prolific in City's last successful promotion tilt, capped with the opener in the 2015 Wembley play-off final triumph.

Jerome is adamant if City's squad keep supplying the chances he will bury them to keep City firmly in the race for a swift top flight return.

'I'll score goals given chances with the players in this squad. I will be disappointed if I don't score goals and I feel I am one of the better forwards in this division,' he said. 'For me it would have to be something dramatically wrong if we didn't get promoted. It is early days, and this division brings out the ups and downs, but I don't think we are far away. If I look around our squad and around the dressing room there are players who know what it takes to get out of the division and the same applies to the manager. He is a fighter. We have got all the materials to do it. It would be our own downfall if we didn't.'

Jerome, however, cautions Norwich can take nothing for granted ahead of this weekend's return to league action against Rotherham, despite making a strong start to the new campaign that has seen them pick up 23 points from the opening 11 league games.

'When we were here two years ago there was still some big Premier League clubs who might have been expected to put up a big fight. It wasn't to be, it was Bournemouth and Watford who were up there,' he said. 'With ourselves, Newcastle and Aston Villa we would have been favourites in most people's eyes to get promoted. You can't discount Brighton, Wolves or Sheffield Wednesday. The Championship is a difficult league to get out of, regardless of how much money you have spent.'
