Fotheringham urges passion

Published Add your comment

Norwich captain Mark Fotheringham has called for his team mates to show bravery in the fight against relegation from the Championship.

Bryan Gunn's men were beaten 1-0 at Preston on Saturday and are just two points above the drop zone, a situation Fotheringham admits is not good enough.

"It takes brave men, it takes men who are willing to go out and fight for the jersey," he said. "It's no secret it's a great club, it deserves to be in the Championship. Not only that, it deserves to be pushing for the Premier League."

He added: "It's unfortunate we are in the situation we are.

"We've had a very up-and-down season, but we need to continue to keep working hard for each other and be brave and show confidence in each other and keep believing we are going to get out of the situation we are in and just take each game as it comes.

"We're in a fight now and we're going to have to see some brave characters that are willing to go and take the ball next week at home."
