RUSSELL MARTIN: OUR TURNING POINT

19 December 2015

'Today we answered some questions...'

NORWICH City captain Russell Martin pointed to a decisive moment in his side's season following a famous  2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Goals from Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey either side of half-time put the visitors in control, before Anthony Martial pulled one back for the Red Devils.

However, the Canaries held on to secure their first win away to United since 1989, and after the game Martin told Norwich City TV: "It's a big three points, particularly coming at a ground where they've not lost all season.

"They are a very good team who will challenge for the title, regardless of what people say. To come here and win is testament to the lads' character and desire.

"Today we've answered some of the questions which were being asked of us. I think this will be a turning point for us because we got back to the way we want to play and won the game."



Returning to a familiar approach proved decisive according to Martin, who explained: "Our identity last year was being aggressive and getting high up the pitch.

"You can't always do that in the Premier League and sometimes you have to adapt. We're learning all the time as a team, and there will be weeks when we get beaten.

"If we carry on playing how we did today then we will pick up points more often than not. As a group our mentality is strong; the manager is great at that.

"It's that simple for us. The Norwich fans have a team they can be proud of at this moment in time. We've had tough times, but we'll always have a go.

"We've got to maintain this now. We won't get too high or too low, so we'll take this forward."
