Winger says team to take what they can from Wigan loss

ROBERT Snodgrass says he and his Norwich City team-mates will try and take the positives from Saturday’s narrow 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic… even if the result leaves the Canaries hovering just four points above the relegation zone in the Premier League.

The hosts closed the gap on a group of teams in the lower part of the table after Arouna Kone slammed home the winner nine minutes from time at the DW Stadium.

Scotland international Snodgrass says that although Chris Hughton’s men are disappointed with the outcome of the game, they will try and pick themselves up quickly enough to get the required points over the final seven matches of the season.

“I’m not worried. I’ll just approach each game as it comes. We’ll get points between now and the end of the season because we believe in ourselves,” he said when speaking to Canaries Player soon after the final whistle.

“It’s a bitterly disappointed dressing room because for large spells of the game we were in it. We can take positives and realise that we matched Wigan.

“We’ll assess things now and take to the training ground as we always do, and we’ll try and step up in front of goal.”

The lack of forward threat is something that the 25-year-old admits is a concern, with City scoring only three goals in their last seven games, but he insists everyone is working hard to remedy the issue.

“It’s about being more ruthless in front of goal. The manager’s called for that in recent weeks, and sometimes those chances fall for you and sometimes they don’t,” he added.

“I think as a team we need to be more clinical so maybe we can sit down and assess things. As a footballer you want to try and get three points every game but it didn’t happen today.

“I can’t say we’re going to win every game between now and the end of the season, but we’ll give it our best shot. We’ll give ever ounce we’ve got. It’s not for lack of effort.

“They took their chance and we didn’t, that’s the bottom line really.”
