Norwich boss Paul Lambert has reiterated his belief that the Canaries are not safe from Premier League relegation until it is mathematically certain.

Lambert's men visit Fulham on Saturday knowing a draw at Craven Cottage will push them to the 40-point mark in their first season back in the top flight.

No team has been relegated having reached the much-coveted total since West Ham dropped into the Championship in 2003.

Norwich have enjoyed a fruitful return to the Premier League and are sitting comfortably in 11th place with only eight games left but Lambert is refusing to contemplate a second season among the elite just yet.

Nonsense
