Midfielder set to stay at Carrow Road until 25 MayGRAHAM Dorrans claims a collective determination to secure promotion was the driving force behind him completing a return to Norwich City until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old rejoined City on an emergency loan from West Bromwich Albion on Thursday, after his initial stay in Norfolk expired following Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest.
Dorrans will now remain at Carrow Road until May 25 which makes him available for any potential play-off campaign, and the midfielder told canaries.co.uk: “The manager has been great, and his desire to get back to the Premier League is second to none.
“Having been here I’ve seen that, which made this a decision I wanted to take. I knew I was coming to a club with quality players and I feel like I’ve added to that.
“All the lads have made it easy to settle in and have been great with me. We’ve had some good results in the last couple of weeks so hopefully we can continue that.”
With just seven games of the regular Sky Bet Championship season remaining, Alex Neil’s side are within two points of the automatic promotion positions as they chase an immediate return to the top flight.
A number of rivals also harbour hopes of securing a place in the top two however, with Dorrans commenting: “I’ve not seen it this tight for a long time because six or seven teams are pushing for it.
“We’ve got a decent run coming up and on our day can beat anyone. With two games in quick succession it will be tough, but we’ll concentrate on each one as it comes.
“Brighton are a good side, but if we stick to our game-plan we’re hopeful of getting the three points. Every match from now is massive. We’re confident we can get the job done.”
