Midfielder believes the tide will turn for City

JONNY Howson retained a positive outlook after Norwich City’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

The midfielder reflected on an attacking second half performance that saw the Canaries do everything but score at Hillsborough, with home ‘keeper Keiran Westwood in inspired form.

“You hold your hands up and say well done to their goalkeeper. He’s put in a top performance,” Howson told Norwich City TV after the game.

“For the majority of the past few games it seems like the same old story. In the second half he has pulled off three or four world class saves.

“The second half was really pleasing, in the first half we took a while to get going but in the second half we dominated possession and created those chances. Our luck will change.

“We’ll just have to keep doing what we’re doing. The pleasing thing is that we’re still creating chances.”

After Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe’s withdrawal at half-time with a knee injury, Howson was employed at the peak of the midfield diamond and he admits it’s a position he relishes.

“It’s a role I very much like. Arguably it suits my style of play best,” he added.

“Nevertheless I’ve only managed to get myself into the team the last two games after the disappointment of being out injured. Anywhere on the pitch at the minute I’ll take.”
