Morison: Norwich can beat drop

New Norwich striker Steve Morison maintains the Canaries have what it takes to emulate the likes of Wigan and West Brom and stay in the Premier League.

Paul Lambert may have been quick to bolster his promotion-winning squad with Wales international Morison, striker James Vaughan from Everton, midfielder Elliott Bennett from Brighton and Belgian defender Ritchie De Laet in a season-long loan from Manchester United, but the Norfolk club remain favourites to suffer a quick relegation.

However, Morison - who was playing non-league football just two seasons ago and signed on with the Canaries from Millwall earlier this summer - sees no reason why Norwich cannot beat the odds and stay up.

''Once you get into the top flight you want to stay in it because so much hard work is required to get to that stage,'' Morison said. ''The Premier League is where this club belongs and I'm sure that the manager and the team will do everything they can to make us stay there.

''The performances of previously promoted clubs have given everyone hope and belief of staying in the top flight and that is a big thing for sides that get to this level.

''You need belief and heart to have any chance of making that happen and the likes of West Brom and Wigan have shown that clubs that go up don't necessarily come back down.''
