Midfielder available for Watford clash

GRAHAM Dorrans is determined to play his part in helping Norwich City chase Sky Bet Championship promotion after joining on loan from West Bromwich Albion earlier this week.

The 27-year-old is set to remain at Carrow Road on an initial deal until Sunday March 22, and is available for selection when the Canaries face Watford on Saturday.

Dropping down a division is not something the midfielder wants to do long-term, and Dorrans told the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday morning: "Everybody wants to be in the Premier League, and this is a Premier League club.

"I came here with the view to getting back to the Premier League and hopefully we can do that this season. You can tell the desire and the passion of the manager, and that was another thing that helped me to come down here.

"You can see he wants to get to the Premier League as well, and hopefully we can do that as a Club. We're pushing on, and are not far away from the top two, which is the aim.

"Everyone's feeling good about it, and we know we're not far away from where we want to be. If we can get three points on Saturday to keep the run going we'll not be far away."

The Scottish interntional has featured in a number of different roles for the Baggies since joining them from Livingston in the summer of 2008.

A stellar 2009-10 second tier season at the Hawthorns saw him strike 18 times from an advanced position, but Dorrans commented: "It's up to the manager where he wants to play me.

"I'm the sort of player who will get on with the job anywhere. For me, I feel my best position is centrally but if the manager played me at left-back I'd get on with it.

"That's the type of player I am, and that's what I'll give. Everybody wants to play, so wherever the gaffer asks me to play that's what I'll do."
