Hughton relishes Norwich home support

The Canaries manager says that he is looking forward to taking on Tony Pulis' Eagles side at Carrow Road this weekend in front of a sell-out home crowd

Chris Hughton is hoping a home crowd can spur Norwich City on to victory against Crystal Palace as their away form continues to falter.

The Canaries have fallen to three consecutive Premier League defeats on the road, conceding 13 goals in the process, but have picked up four points from their last two fixtures at Carrow Road.

17/20 Norwich are 17/20 with William Hill to beat Crystal Palace on Saturday
And Hughton wants that home advantage to pay dividends once again when Norwich welcome Palace, who will be under the stewardship of Tony Pulis for the first time.

"It's a home game on Saturday," the Canaries manager said. "We welcome the opportunity to get back to our own ground in front of a sell-out crowd.

"We know how tight the league table is. A win on Saturday changes things again.

"We know that any Tony Pulis team will play with character and organisation."

With Robert Snodgrass (knee) and Anthony Pilkington (hamstring) sidelined, some of the attacking onus will fall on Nathan Redmond, who concedes that his first season in the English top flight is proving to be a steep learning curve.

"This is my first season in the Premier League, so this year is all about development," he said.

"I'm not too sure there's much pressure. We just want to go out and perform in front of our great fans on Saturday.

"I'm 19 and I'm developing as a player well. I made the right decision to come here."
