Winger looking for reward for continued hard workROBERT Snodgrass hopes Norwich City’s hard work will eventually reap dividends in the battle for Premier League survival – starting this weekend against Southampton.
The Canaries make the trip to the south coast on Saturday with the aim of finally turning performances into points, says the Scotland international winger.
“Over the last two months, we’ve had opportunities to stay unbeaten, that’s my honest opinion,” he told the media at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
“We’ve shot ourselves in the foot and caused our own problems, and that’s why the lads have been pulling their hair out and thinking ‘what’s the next step?’
“I’ll tell you right now that in that changing room, everyone is pulling in the right direction and we’re gunning for the right things. We just need back-to-back results to go our way to try and kick on, because we’re doing everything right at the training ground and we are working hard.”
City haven’t picked up any points on the road since the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on New Year’s Day, which is a statistic Snodgrass is eager to turn around.
“We haven’t been good enough away from home, that’s the bottom line, but there’s no better time to start than against Southampton, so we’ll roll our sleeves up and hopefully be firing on the day,” he added.
“The place after the Stoke game was down, but we’ll pick ourselves up because we need to be in top form to get a result this weekend because they’re probably playing the best that they have in years.”
