SNODGRASS UP FOR THE FIGHT

Midfielder thinks Canaries can pull through

DESIRE for Premier League football next season will be the ultimate factor in this year’s survival battle, says Norwich City winger Robert Snodgrass.

The 26-year-old was on the scoresheet in a brave second half performance from the Canaries against Liverpool, although Neil Adams’ team were eventually edged out 3-2 at Carrow Road.

He believes if City can show the attributes they did after the half-time break, then they have an opportunity to earn the result over the final three matches to stay in the division.

“It’s about who wants it the most and who wants to keep their club in the Premier League,” said the Scotland international to Norwich City TV after the game.

“We will need to give that second half performance from now until the end of the season, nothing less, and hopefully we can stay here.

“The manager will be scratching his head and thinking why we couldn’t start like that, but we’ll assess thing during the week, look over the game and then try to put it right against Manchester United.”
 


Snodgrass admitted the size of their task against the league leaders was too big after Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez scored within the first 11 minutes.

“It’s difficult when you give teams like Liverpool a two-goal start, which is not usually like us. At Carrow Road we usually start the game really well,” he added.

“It was a big ask in the second half but I thought we gave a good account of ourselves. We rolled our sleeves up and gave the maximum effort.

“Fair play to the boys – we hung on in there, and you saw the reaction of the crowd at the end, who were standing up and cheering us.”
