DARREN Huckerby, Norwich City's potential match-winner in Sunday's Coca-Cola Championship derby at Carrow Road, has revealed his despair at the Canaries' current plight.

“At the moment we're just kind of making the numbers up - we're in a lot trouble,” said the 31-year-old, who hinted he could be leaving the bottom-of-the-table side.

“At the minute it is not great. It is probably the worst I have ever felt as a footballer in 16 years.

“It is only the players that are here that can change anything until January and that's another two months away.”

“I am contracted to next summer and will give it my all to the end of the season, like everyone should do.

“Whatever happens I don't want to leave like this, but I am not going to be playing week-in, week-out for a team that loses every week.

“I don't want to be going places where people say things to my kids and stuff. I don't need it.”

The speedy Huckerby was speaking after Norwich's 2-0 defeat at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday and admitted City were in 'a lot of trouble'.

The former Coventry, Leeds and Manchester City winger was one of few players to emerge from the seventh defeat in eight leagues games with any credit.

Huckerby said spirits will have to be lifted before Ipswich arrive at Carrow Road on Sunday lunchtime.

“You shouldn't have to raise anybody for the derby and you shouldn't have to raise anybody for any game, but at the minute we're in a circle where we're not getting the points or picking up results,” he said.

Huckerby bemoaned the summer loss of the likes of Dickson Etuhu and Youssef Safri.

“I think we haven't retained the ball all season and the squad members whose strength was holding on to the ball have gone.”
