PREVIEW: Swans v Norwich

29th March 2014

The Swans will be looking to take another huge step towards Premier League safety when they face Norwich on Saturday (3pm).
Garry Monk's side moved five points clear of the relegation zone in midweek following a 2-2 draw against Arsenal.
It was a crucial result following back-to-back defeats against West Brom and Everton, while Norwich earned a valuable win last weekend against fellow strugglers Sunderland.
The Canaries sit 14th in the table, two points ahead of the Swans, and boast a good record against the Welsh side.
Swansea are yet to record a victory over Norwich since arriving in the Premier League three years ago, and have been beaten twice at the Liberty in recent seasons.

TEAM NEWS
The Swans have no fresh injury concerns for the visit of Norwich, while Leon Britton could make his 400th league appearance for the club.
The visitors could welcome back defender Michael Turner following a hamstring injury, but Elliott Bennett and Leroy Fer are both out.

WHAT THEY SAID
Swans head coach Garry Monk: "We want to get our home form back to what it has been here over the year. Obviously it will be a totally different game on Saturday.
"We are expecting a tough test. I think their league position belies how good they are because they have some very good players.
"But it's about results. At this point of the season, every point is vital. It's always the way at this time of the season."

Norwich boss Chris Hughton: "We would expect them to pay a bit differently, a bit more expansively, as they normally do at home.
"They have goals in the team, especially in Wilfried Bony, who's scoring a lot of goals for them so we're expecting a very tough game."
