ROBERT SNODGRASS: "WE SHOWED CHARACTER"

5 May 2014

Winger says City will 'keep going'

NORWICH City’s players showed great character in the 0-0 draw with Chelsea, says winger Robert Snodgrass.

The Scotland international was talking after the game at Stamford Bridge, where City maintained their hopes of staying in the Premier League with a resilient performance.

“We wouldn’t have been able to look at ourselves in the mirror if we hadn’t given it our all and given ourselves the chance of taking it down to the very last day,” he said.

“We showed the character of men, we were leaders and we put our bodies on the line and tried to give everything we could.

“It’s one of those games where you look back, and obviously you’ve got the point, but you’re sitting there thinking ‘why are we in this position?’ It’s very frustrating, it’s very disappointing but our task was to not get beaten, and we achieved that.”

Snodgrass believes City were denied a penalty kick in the first half when John Terry brought down Martin Olsson in the box, while the winger himself had an effort blocked later in the contest.

“We’ve looked at Olsson’s one and we believe it was a penalty, and then with my chance I’ve just tried to get half a yard onto my right foot to try and get the shot away, but Cahill made a great block,” he added.

“We gave our best and kept going, but we were up against world-class opposition.

“We’ll keep going, we’ll keep believing that we can get something. It’s out of our hands, so hopefully West Brom can do us a favour.”
