2 Norwich City players who need to save their Canaries careers in the final weeks of the season

Published

on

Norwich City look set to make their return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Daniel Farke has been blessed to keep much of his Norwich City side who were relegated with him just a season ago, and even managed to add further quality to their already deep squad for the Championship.

Norwich sit top of the league with 84 points to their name and are currently five points clear of second place Watford with a game in hand. Farke’s side are also on an 11-game unbeaten run in the league having last lost on the 5th February against Swansea.

There are many benefits to having a deep squad but also some drawbacks, especially with some of the players on the fringes who have struggled for game time this season.

Here we will have a look at two Norwich players who need to save their Canaries careers in these final few weeks of the Championship season…

Alex Tettey

Once a Norwich City regular, Tettey has struggled to find a spot in Farke’s side this campaign.

The Norwegian midfielder had back-to-back seasons before this year where he featured in 30 plus games for the Canaries.

However, since the arrival of Oliver Skipp on loan from Spurs this season the tough tackling midfielder has struggled for game time.

Tettey has featured just 15 times this season with most of them appearances coming as a substitute.

Tettey is now 35 years old and will be looking to get as much game time as possible before he hangs up his boots.

Norwich look highly likely of gaining promotion back to the Premier League this season and with Tettey already struggling for Championship game time it could be even harder battling for a spot next year.

Tettey will be hoping he is given a chance in the coming weeks to prove he still has what it takes to positively impact this Norwich side going forward.

Norwich secured their first away win in the league under Daniel Farke against which side?

Jordan Hugill 

Hugill has struggled in recent seasons to get back to his best goal-scoring form and has rarely been given a chance by Farke this season.

The 28-year-old joined the Canaries last summer from QPR but has rarely managed to tie down a place in Norwich’s starting side.

Competing with a goal scorer as clinical as Teemu Pukki, who has managed another 22 goals in the season so far, is never going to be easy.

Hugill has managed just three goals in 24 games this campaign. Last year at QPR he managed 13 goals in 39 games and Norwich were hoping that he could make more of an impact as a back-up to Pukki.

The former Preston man has lost his way a little since making his move from Preston to West Ham in 2017 and will be looking to get a regular spot in a team where he see’s regular game time.

Hugill will be hoping that with just seven league games left he will be given a chance to show he is worthy of a spot in the team for their potential Premier League journey.
