Swansea City (A) – March 5
Norwich City’s blushes are currently being spared by their better goal difference than fellow relegation rivals Newcastle United, otherwise Alex Neil’s side would be sitting in the Premier League’s bottom three. However there is still time to crawl to safety before the end of the season is nigh. Their trip to the Liberty Stadium, where Swansea lie just three points above the drop zone, early next month could be the perfect early platform towards survival.
Newcastle United (H) – April 2
Next up; a crucial ‘six pointer’ at Carrow Road against the fellow struggling Magpies. With both sides currently locked on points (24) at the foot of the table, a victory for either outfit could work wonders in their respective missions of preserving their Premier League status come May.
Sunderland (H) – April 16
Then just a fortnight later, it is time for Norwich City to welcome the other counterparts of Tyne-Wear to Carrow Road, with second from bottom Sunderland enduring the trip to East Anglia. Neil’s men’s impressive 3-1 victory at the Stadium of Light back in August should give them some confidence heading into this crunch match.
