Defender says players will give all in fight for survival

MICHAEL Turner knows the size of the task ahead of Norwich City – but insists he and his teammates will battle to the very end.

The Canaries go into tomorrow’s tough-looking game at Chelsea both relying on other sides’ results on Saturday and on upsetting the odds at Stamford Bridge in order to get out of the Premier League relegation places.

“We’ll keep fighting to the end. Funny things happen in football all the time, and people are aware that the top and bottom of the league this year is exciting. We’ll keep doing all we can and hopefully things work out good for us,” he told the press on Friday.

“I don’t know the exact points that we need, but we’ll need something from both games. That starts against Chelsea and then we’ll take it from there.

“It’s a tough game. They’re a great team who are still pushing for the title, but if we set out the way we want to play and our game-plan works out, then we are quite confident we can get something.”

The centre-back, who has forged a defensive partnership with Russell Martin since Neil Adams took over as manager last month, praised the continued support of the Norwich City fans.

“They have been fantastic. The home support is always sold out, and away support is second to none. We’ve got no questions over their support, and it’s up to us to give them something back,” he added.

“From the players’ point of view we’re fighting for our lives. We’ll give everything we’ve got this weekend, and hopefully that will be enough.”

On recent away-day struggles, he commented: “It’s tough to put our finger on it. We have played well in recent games but we’ve come away with nothing, which has been the disappointment. As the manager has said, we’d rather play not so well and come away with something.”
