Winger encouraged with productivity in front of goal

ELLIOTT Bennett was keen to take only positives out of the Canaries’ 2-2 draw with Swansea City on Saturday… saying how pleased he was at the increased threat from City in the final third.

The 24-year-old created both goals for Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner at Carrow Road – only the second time Chris Hughton’s men have managed to score more than once in a single match since the turn of the year.

Bennett was encouraged that the team’s hard work on the training pitch paid dividends.

“We trained really hard all week this week to put things right. We had a lot of possession against Wigan but didn’t make a lot of it,” Bennett told Canaries Player after the final whistle.

“Today we managed to create a few chances and take some. You have to take the positives out of the game but we’re disappointed we didn’t get all three points.

“We gave it a really good go and took it to Swansea. Last week the final ball wasn’t good enough, but today it was better and we managed to bear the fruits of that labour.”

The winger was delighted to make a direct contribution with two assists but says he wants to continue to improve and make the most of his run in the team.

“That’s my job, and I am pleased that I managed to do that, but I’ll be looking at things that I didn’t do so well today and try and put them right in training,” he added.

“I’ve had some poor crosses today too, and I want to try and put that right and create some more chances for the team when I get the opportunity.”

Looking ahead to next weekend, Bennett said: “Hopefully at Arsenal we can dig in as a team, show some spirit and. come away from there with some points.

“The teams below us have games in hand, but at this stage of the season I think you would rather have the points on board. That’s what we’ve got, and we have six more games to try and pick up as many as possible.”
