Farke realistic about survival chances

Norwich manager Daniel Farke says he is realistic but believes his team will keep fighting while Premier League survival remains a possibility.

The Canaries are seven points adrift of safety and are rooted to the bottom of the standings having lost their last five games, failing to score on each occasion.

Norwich travel to relegation rivals Watford on Tuesday and victory at Vicarage Road would bridge the gap on the Hornets to just four points with as many games to go.

It's important to show our pride with good performances

However, Farke says energetic midfielder Todd Cantwell is missing for the crunch clash after he picked up a hamstring injury in Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton, while Kenny McClean and Alex Tettey must both be assessed.

Despite their struggles and relegation becoming increasingly likely, the German insists the Canaries will fight until the end.

Speaking in his press conference, Farke said: "We're still realistic. We've had five wins in 33 games and need five from the last five. As long as it's possible we will keep going.

"It seems like none of the teams at the bottom are capable of getting points. We've lost our last five, so it's not up to us to say we'll win our next five.

"It's important to show our pride with good performances and win as many points as possible."

Norwich are 5.20 to win the match at Watford, who are 1.70 with the draw a 3.80 chance.
