Norwich City manager, Chris Hughton has demanded that his players react to the dismal defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday night and said he was happy to have another away game come round so quickly.
"I think we`ve got to be pleased and grateful that this game has come around as quickly as it has. It gives us an opportunity to right some wrongs," said Hughton at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
"We`re hurting from Wednesday night - I certainly want to see a reaction from the players and I want to see a performance that gives us a good chance of winning the game."
Hughton was also honest when talking about his side's appalling away form.
Form that has seen City gain just three points from a possible twenty one - all three coming in the win at Stoke.
"The stats speak for themselves. We`re on the back of big defeats at Manchester City and Liverpool - we have to as a team defend better, and we have to eliminate the individual errors that are costing us," he added.
"The only way we can do that is by working hard on the training pitch, being organised and making sure that we`re making it a lot tougher for opposition away from home."
If that's all it takes, it surprises me that we haven't got it sorted sooner, he makes it sound so simple!
Hughton also thinks that Steve Clarke has done a very good job in the eighteen months he has been in charge at The Hawthorns.
"He`s done a very good job there. This is his second year in management and he`s doing very well, but he was a coach for a long while before that of course," he said.
"West Brom are one point in front of us and have been spoken about in very good terms. It`s an opportunity for us now - we have to make sure we get that right reaction from the team. It`s a game that we must look forward to and we must do everything we can to win."
So another away game on Saturday. Anyone fancy our chances of a win?
