Never mind the danger, but make sure you can sense it – that's the cure to Norwich City's home sickness according to Cameron Jerome.

The Canaries' valiant effort – despite defeat – at Premier League leaders Manchester City went some way to repairing the mood around the club.

But with their winless league run now extended to six games, including successive defeats at Carrow Road, the urgency for three points at home to Swansea on Saturday will be hard to ignore.

City have won just four points from a possible 15 at home on their top-flight return, while only one of those opponents currently resides in the top nine of the table – and all that, despite dominating most of their rivals.

So it's time for the story to change for Alex Neil's men and Norwich's number 10 has a theory for how they can make it happen, starting this weekend.

'We've dominated most games, if not every game we've played at home,' said the striker. 'We just can't seem to score when we're on top or when we're having good spells in the game. That's probably been the key to it.

'Teams have counter-attacked us, and it's those fine margins that cost you points and stop you winning football games.

'I think especially in the last couple of games, we've probably been outfoxed by the opposition. West Brom probably had a game plan that worked. Leicester had the same, stuck to it and it worked. So it's something we've got to be wiser to and we've got to repair mistakes on the pitch.

'It's between us to recognise the danger and I don't think we're doing that as a team well enough at the minute, and ultimately it's costing us goals.

'It can be difficult to sort those things out in training but it's one of those things where you've just got to take responsibility when you're on the pitch and sometimes you've got to sense the danger. If you can't sense the danger, then ultimately at this level you are going to get punished.'
