David Fox calm on Norwich City promotion bid

Norwich City midfielder David Fox insists there is no panic at Carrow Road after the Canaries slipped out of the automatic promotion places.

City dropped to third with a draw at Watford on Tuesday, allowing Cardiff to climb up to second.

But 27-year-old Fox remains unconcerned, telling BBC Radio Norfolk: "No-one's put together a great run among the other sides.

"We need to put pressure on them on Friday when we play Nottingham Forest."

City had occupied the second automatic promotion place since beating Bristol City 3-1 on 14 March.

But defeat at Swansea on Saturday and the two dropped points at Watford have seen Paul Lambert's side drop back into the mix.

However Norwich can regain second place when Forest come to Carrow Road on Friday evening.

"It was in our hands and now it's not anymore, but we've got a chance to play before everybody else on Friday," Fox added.

"We need to look at three points and then put the pressure back on to other teams. We've come this far. We've got to really give everything in the last five games now.

"I wouldn't say I'm worried, I think there's plenty of twists and turns between now and the end of the season."
