Few goals for Canaries to sing about
6:00am Friday 14th March 2014 in Sport
NORWICH arrive at St Mary’s tomorrow with the worst away defensive record in the top flight – and one of the worst scoring ones in it too!
The Canaries have shipped 32 goals in their 14 away league games, including seven at Manchester City and five at Liverpool.
Chris Hughton’s men have also lost 4-1 at Arsenal and by the same scoreline on their last away league game at Aston Villa earlier this month.
Norwich have’t been much better at scoring goals than they have in trying to stop them going in at the other end.
With just 22 goals to their name, they are the joint second lowest scorers in the top flight.
The only team who have scored fewer goals is Crystal Palace, whose 1-0 loss to Saints last weekend ensured they have netted just 19 goals in 29 games.
Norwich have only scored nine times in their 14 away games, registering a blank in six of those contests.
They are one of five Premier League clubs to have suffered 10 away defeats this term.
Twice they have won away from Carrow Road – 1-0 at Stoke and 2-0 at West Bromwich Albion.
Since triumphing at The Hawthorns on December 7, the Canaries have picked up just two points from six away games, scoring only three goals in the process.
One man desperate for a goal tomorrow will be Norwich’s £8.5m record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel.
The Dutchman arrived last summer in a blaze of publicity, and promptly scored on his debut against Everton.
But he has failed to net again in his subsequent 18 league games, leaving former Saints target Gary Hooper as Norwich’s top Premier marksman with five goals.
