Match Preview

No Tettey return Norwich will again be without midfielder Alex Tettey because of a knee problem for the Barclays Premier League clash against Southampton at Carrow Road. On-loan Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara is pressing for a place in the starting XI after some impressive displays as a substitute. England goalkeeper John Ruddy continues his rehabilitation from thigh surgery and is set for a return at the end of March, but winger Andrew Surman is not expected to play again this season after a minor operation on his knee. Despite their industry, Norwich head into the clash having recorded just one victory in their last 11 Premier League games - and that courtesy of a stoppage-time winner from Grant Holt to beat Everton. Midfielder Robert Snodgrass accepts the team have to be "more ruthless" if they are to avoid being dragged into a battle for survival, currently with a safety net of eight points. "We have put in some good performances, but just not scored enough goals and so need to be more clinical, if we can do that on Saturday then we will get three points," said Snodgrass, who has weighed in with five goals. "As a winger, you try to put as many crosses in as you can. "It is simple, we just have to put the ball in the back of the net, which is why the gaffer has said we need to be more ruthless. "Maybe it is just about that little bit of magic in front of goal, whatever it is, we need to add that to our game." Southampton will check on the fitness of Adam Lallana and Danny Fox. The pair were forced off during last Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to QPR with neck and quadriceps complaints respectively. Luke Shaw was limited to a substitute appearance in that game due to a recent thigh problem, while Vegard Forren will be hoping to make his first-team debut after appearing for the Under-21s against Liverpool on Monday. Boss Mauricio Pochettino is not even entertaining the prospect of relegation, despite his side sitting precariously in 16th place. "At the moment I am not thinking about that," Pochettino said. "The only thing I am working on is getting better every day and getting better results." After back-to-back defeats to Newcastle and QPR, victory would be a timely boost for Saints. "We need to go in search of a positive result after two negative results," Pochettino added. "If we are able to get the three points, it will put us with those teams that are also fighting but are a little bit higher up the table. "I haven't set myself a number of points to achieve to stay up. What is my absolute desire is to win the next game."

Canaries pay penalty

Norwich captain Grant Holt saw his stoppage-time penalty saved as Southampton battled to a goalless draw in atrocious conditions at Carrow Road.

With heavy rain before kick-off being followed by sleet, neither side was able to get any real spell of possession, with clear-cut chances few and far between.

Saints skipper Adam Lallana blasted over when in front of an open goal while Japan defender Maya Yoshida made vital blocks to prevent Holt and Robert Snodgrass scoring.

There was late drama, though, as Luke Shaw was ruled to have pushed over Holt just inside the penalty area, as referee Mark Clattenburg pointed to the spot after consulting with his assistant.

Southampton, though, felt justice was served as Artur Boruc produced a decent stop down to his left to secure a well-deserved share of the points for the visitors.

The terrible conditions made for testing control from both teams during the opening exchanges as the ball whizzed across the saturated surface.

It was difficult for players to keep their footing, with Holt shown a yellow card after 16 minutes after sliding through on Morgan Schneiderlin.

Southampton created the first decent opening when a low centre from Schneiderlin was beaten away by Norwich keeper Mark Bunn, who then tipped over Lallana's rising 20-yard drive.

Norwich - who beat Everton here with two late goals a fortnight ago - were struggling to get hold of the ball in midfield as the visitors continued to press.

When right-back Russell Martin did get forward and float in a teasing ball through the penalty area, goalkeeper Boruc got there ahead of Kei Kamara, making his first start since a loan move from Kansas City.

Southampton broke quickly after 28 minutes through Rickie Lambert and his onward pass found Gaston Ramirez in space at the edge of the Norwich penalty area but his attempted chip was palmed out by Bunn as Javier Garrido mopped up the loose ball.

At the other end, Snodgrass whipped in a 25-yard free-kick, which Boruc fisted away.

Norwich were forced into a change nine minutes before the break when Anthony Pilkington hobbled off with a hamstring injury, replaced by Wes Hoolahan.

Holt was just unable to get on the end of a low cross from Snodgrass which flew through the Southampton six-yard box.

The visitors had a golden chance to take the lead at the start of the second half.

Jay Rodriguez burst down the left and cut into the penalty area. His cross was cleared by Sebastien Bassong but the ball fell to Lallana some 12 yards out.

However, with the goal at his mercy, the Southampton skipper could only blaze the ball high into the Barclay End.

The pace of the match intensified as Japan defender Yoshida produced a superb block to prevent Holt getting on the end of Snodgrass' cross after a great knockdown by Kamara.

Rodriguez' snapshot was then beaten away by Bunn and Lambert fired the rebound over.

At the other end, Snodgrass was played in by Hoolahan but the ball ran away from the Scotland international as he went around the goalkeeper, which allowed Yoshida to hack clear.

Midfielder James Ward-Prowse came on for Lallana as Southampton looked to freshen things up for the closing stages before Norwich sent on January signing Luciano Becchio for Kamara.

There was late drama as Shaw's nudge on Holt saw Clattenburg give a penalty - which resulted in a mass confrontation between the players with substitute Jason Puncheon booked.

Holt scored an injury-time winner against Everton a fortnight ago but there was to be no repeat as Boruc guessed right and earned Southampton a draw.
