Chris Hughton calls for improvements from his Norwich City side

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton urges his team to improve as they prepare to welcome Sunderland this weekend.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has insisted that his team "need to be better" when they take on Sunderland at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The Canaries are just four points above the relegation zone in the Premier League table with eight games remaining in their campaign.

"We need to be better," Hughton told the club's official website. "We're at home, and our record at home has certainly been good of late.

"We haven't conceded many goals at home and we've got to be positive enough to make sure we can score the goals we need to win. It's a real opportunity to bounce back and generally with this team the reaction to a bad performance has generally been good."

Sunderland are currently third from bottom in the standings.
