Defender positive about Canaries' outlook after Cherries draw

MICHAEL Turner says there is ‘more to come’ from Norwich City as they enter the two-week international break after a busy start to their 2014-15 season.

Following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at Carrow Road, the Canaries are in fourth place in the Sky Bet Championship after collecting ten points from their opening five games.

Turner was given the Anglian Home Improvement Man of the Match award against the Cherries but knows the team didn’t reach the heights of recent weeks.

“We are disappointed that we didn’t win the game,” he told Norwich City TV.

“In the second half we plugged away but it just wasn’t to be. We didn’t play as well as we know we can, but we didn’t get beaten today and we’ll take that forward.

“I think there’s more to come from us as a team, I think we can play even better than we have done so far in the season and hopefully we can prove that.

“For me personally, I’m happy with the position we’re in as a team and with the stuff we’re doing on the pitch. I feel confident we can carry that through. If we perform the way we can, we know we can beat a lot of teams in this league and we can be in a position where we want to find ourselves.”

The strong defender says the fortnight without a match coming up represents an important period of rest ahead of another relentless batch of fixtures.

“We’ve got a bit of time off to rest and recuperate, and then we’ll be training for a couple of days,” he told reporters.

“It’s been hectic, it certainly gives the boys a chance to get a rest and look back on what’s happened so far.

“We know when we’re back in that there are games galore coming up, so it’s important that we get that now and get ourselves ready for what’s ahead for us.”
