Chris Hughton hopeful over Turner

Chris Hughton Norwich BossNorwich boss Chris Hughton is hopeful Michael Turner will play again this season despite picking up a groin injury against Reading.

The former Hull City and Sunderland defender has been an ever present in the Canaries side since December but managed just 17 minutes of the 2-1 win over the Royals last Saturday.

Turner has formed an excellent partnership with Sebastian Bassong and Hughton is keen to have Turner fit for the run in as he feels Norwich need a few more points to guarantee another season in the Premier League.

He said: “We certainly would’ve liked Michael to have stayed on. We’re not sure how bad it is. He’s felt his groin and we’re hoping it will be slight.

“I’ve always thought we will need around 40 points and there are teams around us capable of winning games so I do think it will take more.”

Should Turner be ruled out of the remaining four matches then Ryan Bennett could be set for a run in the team after stepping off the bench to score on Saturday.
