Matty Pattison claims the Canaries are capable of upsetting the odds and beating Championship leaders Wolves tonight.

“We are not fearing Wolves,” said the midfielder. “We know we have got a strong enough squad to compete and especially at Carrow Road. We can definitely turn them over.

“It will probably be a similar thing to Birmingham - that brought the best out of us, although you shouldn't need that to bring the best out of us, but it did.

“Maybe that will be the same on Tuesday.”

It's a bold claim - Wolves are 15 points and 20 places ahead of City; they've lost only twice in 11 games and have scored 26 goals, compared to City's eight.

Pattison is still waiting for his first City goal after 38 appearances, having missed a decent chance at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

But he insists that City's strikers just need a break to improve their meagre record.

“To be fair I have rushed it a bit, but there were quite a few people coming back off the line and people trying to get it off me, so I don't think that was as clear-cut as some of the ones I have already had, but, still, I should have hit the target,” he said.

“You have to try and forget about it and hopefully you get another one and put it away, but none of them seem to be going away at the minute.

“As a team in general we don't seem to be scoring at the minute and it's something we need to look at and obviously need to improve on if we are to start climbing up the league.

“It is one of those things - you just want one of them just to trickle over the line and we'll be fine and start scoring, you just need that something to put them away.”

Having suffered a third consecutive defeat at Bristol City, Pattison admits this week's home games against Wolves and Doncaster must be productive.

“We need six points from this Tuesday and obviously Saturday as well against Doncaster,” he said.

“We definitely need the six points if we are going to try and stay with the pack at the top.”
