Premier League: Norwich players pay back fans who went to Swansea

eNewsletter
In an unusual, but welcome gesture, Norwich City's players will reimburse the admission price for all the Norwich City fans who travelled to watch Saturday's 3-0 loss at Swansea City.

The squad decided to the make the gesture as a thank you to the 899 fans who made the 612-mile round trip.

Norwich captain Russell Martin, said: "All the lads really felt for the fans at the end of Saturday's game.

"Hopefully this will help them with the cost of travelling to our next away game at Fulham."

Martin said: "These next few games are obviously vital and the support and the atmosphere at our recent win over Sunderland at Carrow Road made a massive difference.

"So hopefully they'll get right behind us again this Saturday when we play West Brom, at Fulham and in all of our remaining games, to help us finish as high up the table as possible."

Norwich are six points clear of the Premier League relegation zone with just one win from their last five matches.

They entertain fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion on Saturday and travel to bottom of the league Fulham on 12 April.

The Canaries home form has under pinned the Premier League survival and 24 of their 32 points have come at Carrow Road. Their travelling fans have had to suffer one of the worst away records in the sector with just two wins and two draws to show all season.
