Hughton has work cut out.

Byline: ROBBIE SAVAGE

STONE the crows, the fixture computer has thrown Chris Hughton a hospital pass with Norwich's last four games of the season.

The Canaries' run-in consists of games against Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal - in that order - and, in the normal course of events, you would not expect Norwich to take many points from any of those.

Effectively, it means Hughton (right) must win 20 points from the next 13 games to keep them up.

Mathematically, it's perfectly possible, but, in practice, one-and-ahalf points per game is a tall order.

I like Hughton, and he has worked f dti diligently to build on the foundations he inherited from Paul Lambert, but he spent a lot of money in the summer - and there are signs of clubs below them getting their act together and pulling clear of danger.

Much as it pains me to say so, but Hughton may have only to the second week of April to save his job - and, right now, I fear the worst for Norwich.
