Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke still believes his team has a chance of saving themselves in the Premier League, despite a winless run of seven games.
But the Canaries' boss was very encouraged by their 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night (December 28)
City led twice at Carrow Road, initially through Mario Vrancic's first Premier League goal, and then through a Serge Aurier own goal.
Both, however, were cancelled out by a Christian Eriksen free-kick and a penalty from Harry kane.
The hosts also rued another goal being disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system.
Teemu Pukki thought he'd beaten the offside trap to slot home Norwich's second before half time.
But on review it was ruled out by the slenderest of margins when, to the naked eye, the Finnish striker looked level with Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld.
The point earned, however, helped Norwich cut the gap between themselves and safety to six points with eighteen games left.
Before the game fans and players joined in a minute's applause in tribute to former England captain and World Cup winner Martin Peters who died shortly before Christmas.
Peters played more than 200 games for the Canaries after joining in 1975, scoring fifty goals, and was twice named City's Player of the Year.
He was best remembered for scoring England's second goal in beating West Germany 4-2 in the 1966 World Cup Final
