Max Aarons: We have to take the point and move on

27 November 2018

City right-back Max Aarons said the team were disappointed to only take a point from tonight’s game, but will keep battling to stay top of the league.

The match ended goalless despite Norwich dominating possession throughout both halves, but Aarons said they will take the draw and turn their attention to the next home game.

“We are disappointed with a point, but it was tough conditions and the pitch wasn’t the best,” said Aarons. “But I think we did well, so we have to take the point and move on to Saturday where hopefully we will get the win.”

Both teams battled wet and windy conditions and Aarons, 18, said it made a big difference to the way they could play.

He said: “The pitch can influence the way we play so we just need to focus on Saturday now and put this behind us. But when we are getting points and we are not happy with it, it shows we are doing something right.

“We said at half time if we dig in and don’t concede then hopefully we can get a goal. It didn’t happen, but you have those days and you can’t win every game. It was just unfortunate that we couldn’t score tonight.”

Aarons, who has cemented his place in the First Team since making his league debut against Ipswich Town, said he is pleased to see his team getting recognition this season.

“It has been really good, especially to be top of the league,” Aarons said. “The team is playing really well and in really good form. I’m really happy and just want to keep going.”

Almost 1,200 Canary fans made the trip to Hull on the back of Saturday's Swansea game, and Aarons said their support helps the team continue fighting on the pitch.

“The fans were really loud tonight, probably louder than the home fans at points. It’s amazing to have them follow us everywhere and make the journey,” he said.   

And looking ahead to Saturday’s Carrow Road fixture against Rotherham, Aarons said the team will be more determined than ever to deliver a result for the fans.

“We haven’t been at home for a while, so we are looking forward to getting back in front of the Norwich fans and hopefully we can get the result too.”
