Defender remains positive after Swans defeat

RYAN Bennett says Norwich City still hold belief after Saturday's 1-0 Barclays Premier League defeat away to Swansea City saw them remain in the bottom three with nine games remaining.

A run of poor form was extended at the Liberty Stadium courtesy of Gylfi Sigurdsson's second half strike, with City now without a win since beating Southampton at the start of the year.

Reflecting on the loss in Wales to Norwich City TV, Bennett said: "They scored and we didn't, it's as simple as that.

"We just need to keep going. We're putting a lot of effort into games but that counts for nothing when you're losing.

"We have nine games left and that's what we need to focus on in order to stay up. We need to find the recipe to win matches; to score goals and get points.

"That's it. It doesn't matter how we do it."

Bennett claims his side have demonstrated they are capable of improving results during the closing weeks of the campaign, and added: "As a group of lads we've got to be positive.

"It's difficult for us, but it's difficult for Sunderland and Newcastle too. We know we need to win when we play them.

"We've had chances in games so we 100 per cent believe we can win matches. We just need to find a way of doing that.

"We have a good record when we score first so it's important for us to do that in future games. Doing that will help to keep us up."
