Max Aarons: We never know when we are beaten

15 December 2018

Max Aarons was full of praise for Norwich City’s fighting spirit as they came from behind yet again to add to their Sky Bet Championship points tally.

The Canaries youngster bagged his third goal of the season in the final 15 minutes of the 2-2 draw with Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Speaking to post-match, Aarons said: “We have a never-say-die attitude. We never feel like we are beaten.

“Even if we go one or two goals behind, we always feel we can get back in the game with the players that we have and even away at grounds like this.

“We’re disappointed to come away with just a point but it could have been worse and we could have lost the game. We’re just glad we got the final goal and come away with a point.”

On the team's performance, Aarons said: “It was tough. They [Bristol City] tried to nullify what we do, you could tell that they’ve watched us a lot before the game.

“They tried to cut out the areas that we are good in. We kept trying to create things despite that and sometimes you have to take a point.

“When you are near the top of the league, teams take note more of what you are doing. You could see it today. They turned up and really wanted it.”

Aarons was one of a number of Canaries suffering with a bout of illness prior to and during the match.

“I didn’t feel the best out there but it happens,” he continued. “You’re going to have games in the season when everyone isn’t 100% so it’s just one of those things.

“We backed each other throughout the game and if people were feeling a bit ill, we always felt we were strong and could get through it. It says a lot about our mentality."
