Norwich defender Michael Turner insists he is positive the club can beat the drop this season despite facing the toughest run-in of any of the sides involved in the relegation scrap.

Turner has been involved in some ‘great escapes’ in the past during his time with Sunderland and Hull City. The 30-year-old was in the Black Cats side that shocked table-topping Chelsea with a 3-0 victory in November 2010.

Then, in 2009, he was a member of the Hull squad that managed to keep their top-flight status with a one-point cushion over the bottom three.

The Canaries face a similar challenge as the current season draws to an end with their final two games coming against Chelsea on Sunday and Arsenal on the final day.

However, Turner insists that there is a confidence running through the squad and he believes they have enough quality to climb out of the bottom three.

Turner said: “Chelsea are a great team with great players and they are still fighting hard for the title.

“But we have to be confident that we can go there and get something from the game. We have to concentrate on doing our jobs – individually and collectively.”

Norwich, who are 1.09 to go down, have lost their last five league outings and Turner says it is important to bring an end to that torrid run with so little time left.
