City forward relishing challenge of visiting league leaders

CAMERON Jerome insists Norwich City will go to The Etihad Stadium with no fear when they face Manchester City in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday (3pm).

The Citizens currently top the division on 22 points, having scored 16 times across their most recent three domestic outings on home turf.

Despite the free-scoring nature of Manuel Pellegrini's men, Jerome told the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday morning: "Thing haven't gone our way of late but we want to turn that around this weekend.

"They are a fantastic side, which we're well aware of. We can't give them too much respect though because we deserve to be on the same pitch.

"We take encouragement from what the likes of West Ham have done against them. It shows they're not unbeatable."

The Canaries have endured a testing spell of late, with a run of three consecutive league defeats being followed by a cruel Capital One Cup elimination at Everton on Tuesday evening.

Jerome is adamant such form is temporary however, and added: "No players like losing and it's up to us to change that.

"It's about standing up and doing something to improve. This league is ruthless in terms of taking no prisoners so we've got to maintain belief in what we're doing.

"We want to be competitive and stay up. Our squad is capable of doing that and we're determined to be a success."
