Norwich keeper issues warning over Premier League status

Norwich goalkeeper Mark BunnNorwich goalkeeper Mark Bunn believes talk of Premier League safety is a little premature.

The Canaries moved nine points clear of the drop zone last weekend with a goalless draw with Southampton, prompting some to conclude that they may be safe.

But, with nine games left to play, Bunn feels that the East Anglians cannot afford to rest and must fight for every point possible to guarantee top-flight football for next season:

“We don’t see ourselves as safe. I think we need a couple more wins and then we will be okay.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail.

Norwich face a run of fixtures against the teams around them at the bottom end of the table, in what could be a decisive few weeks.

They take on both Sunderland and Wigan in their next two outings before hosting Reading two games later.

Bunn feels that these matches will be decisive and that if positive results are achieved the Carrow Road outfit could be safe:

“Sunderland is a winnable game so hopefully we can look forward to that and get the three points, then against Wigan too.

“They are games against teams around us, so our main aim is not to lose those games, try to take a point away from home and win our home games.

“If we do that then we will be all right.”

Bunn has been filling in for injured first choice goalkeeper John Ruddy, but is hopeful of retaining his starting spot when his rival returns to fitness later this month.
