Winger shares his thoughts on current run

CITY's squad remains tighter than ever despite their recent downturn in form, says winger Jacob Murphy.

Last weekend's 2-1 reverse at the hands of Queens Park Rangers was the Canaries' fourth Sky Bet Championship defeat on the spin.

Murphy, addressing the media at Colney on Friday ahead of the weekend trip to Derby County, reiterated his belief that results will soon go his team's way, saying: "Everyone's positive.

"That's our main focus, to get points back on the board. We're in a blip at the moment but it's not going to last forever.

"We're a tight group. The boys are always talking to eachother and trying to sort out problems. We just stay together. This is when we need eachother, and we're all trying to stay positive and upbeat.

"We've been working really hard in the last couple of weeks on defensive shape. At the end of the day, the results will come.

"Newcastle had their blip at the start of the season, we're now having ours and we will come through it. Things can only get better."

The 21-year-old committed his future to the Club in midweek by signing a new four-and-a-half year deal, extending his stay at Carrow Road until 2021.

He added: "It's easy for me to say that it means everything, but it honestly does. It's home, it's like my family here. I've been playing here for a very long time.

"Now it's about Saturday though, that's where the focus is at.

"It's a massive game. They (Derby) are one of the big-hitters in this league, and usually we play really well against the bigger teams. Hopefully tomorrow we can get the right result."
