Norwich City winger Elliott Bennett is encouraged with productivity in front of goal despite the 2-2 draw at home to Swansea City.

The 24-year-old winger created both goals for Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner at Carrow Road, but it's only the second time the Canaries have scored more than one at home this year.

Bennett told Canaries Player: “We trained really hard all week this week to put things right. We had a lot of possession against Wigan but didn’t make a lot of it,

“We managed to create a few chances [against Swansea] and take some. You have to take the positives out of the game but we’re disappointed we didn’t get all three points.

“We gave it a really good go and took it to Swansea. Last week the final ball wasn’t good enough, but today it was better and we managed to bear the fruits of that labour.” 

Bennett was the hub of creativity in the Norwich side with two assists and the winger says he’s glad to be doing his job well.

“That’s my job, and I am pleased that I managed to do that, but I’ll be looking at things that I didn’t do so well today and try and put them right in training.

“I’ve had some poor crosses today too, and I want to try and put that right and create some more chances for the team when I get the opportunity.”

Norwich may find themselves sucked in to the relegation battle if their form doesn’t pick up but Bennett is hopeful that Norwich can take an unlikely point away to Arsenal next weekend. 

He said: “Hopefully at Arsenal we can dig in as a team, show some spirit and come away from there with some points. 

“The teams below us have games in hand, but at this stage of the season I think you would rather have the points on board. That’s what we’ve got, and we have six more games to try and pick up as many as possible.”
