Robert Snodgrass wants Norwich City to use their festive fixtures to start looking up the Premier League table, rather than down at the trap door.

The Canaries host Fulham on Boxing Day (3pm) with the visitors 19th and embroiled in a relegation scrap that new boss Rene Meulensteen will be eager to get his team out of as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile, a three-game unbeaten run for Norwich has seen them earn a useful cushion to the top-flight’s bottom three – and Snodgrass wants further progression to be the aim from here on in.

“I don’t think we can start looking back; we don’t want to look behind us,” said Snodgrass, with City lying 14th in the table. “I think with the players we’ve got in the squad and the belief, we need to look forward.

“It sounds silly maybe because we need to score the goals but you need to keep believing and looking forward.

“These fans are so passionate. They will you on with every kick and they were the same again at Sunderland.

“They were different class and I just think if they stick with us then we can look forward.

“We don’t need that little bit of extra pressure to be looking over our shoulder. We need to be looking forward, and add that different pressure. The one that comes with belief. And we’ve got the players to go and do it.

“We’ve got two home games now that we can definitely win.”

  • The fans urge Robert Snodgrass to start putting crosses in the middle where our strikers can get them !

  • Sorry to raise an old chestnut, perhaps it should be a roasted one! John in Leeds, it's unlikely that Snods will get many crosses in playing down the right. He's all left foot. It's fine for a second striker, or one of a front 3 playing on the wrong side, but it doesn't really make sense for a wrong sided winger in a 4 4 2 for me. Leave Redmond out there and play Snods on the left where he can use his left foot to cross with. Either that or play with one winger (Red) with Wes in a floating role. Looking forward to tomorrow.

  • Truth is, we have a wealth of talent in the squad. One way of another, we have not reached our full potential too many times this season and one has to think that there is an awful lot to come once the team starts firing on all cylinders. No better way to answer the critics than to give Fulham a comprehensive beating and then look to give Man Utd something to think about on Saturday ! OTBC

  • Actually thought Snodgrass was doing better on the crossing from the right last game, personally.

  • Great to see they're in a positive frame of mind. We all know they're capable. Go and seal the deal folks.
