I want that seventh place - Nigel
Nigel Worthington has urged his players to go out on a winning note and book seventh place in the final Coca-Cola Championship table.
City boss Nigel Worthington today urged his players to go out on a winning note and book seventh place in the final Coca-Cola Championship table.
Victory over Wolves at Carrow Road on Sunday (1.30pm) would leave the Canaries just one place short of the play-offs, albeit many points adrift.
Said Worthington: “The game is a nice little marker for me, the last game of the season, on where we want to finish. Do we want to finish seventh or eighth, ninth or tenth? I want to finish in seventh place.”
Worthington confirmed that Craig Fleming would play in the centre of defence, with Jason Shackell absent after an ankle operation.

It leaves a vacancy for either Jürgen Colin or Rossi Jarvis to fill in at right-back. Striker Leon McKenzie would definitely be in the squad, he said.
On-loan Fulham defender Zesh Rehman could also be in the squad, but will be returning to the London club at the end of the season.
