Alex Neil: Watching striker

Alex Neil insists Norwich can still avoid relegation this season after hailing the effort of his players in the draw against title-chasing Manchester City.

The Canaries started slowly but soon found their feet in the match and were worthy of their point in the hard-fought 0-0 draw at Carrow Road.

And Neil believes Norwich, who are still to play Newcastle and Sunderland at Carrow Road, can avoid the drop.

“I didn’t need that performance to strengthen my belief,” the Scot said.

“I believe we’re good enough to do it. What it will do is help the squad and the fans and everybody connected with Norwich.

“The amount of effort the players are putting in to stay in this league can’t be questioned and the fans responded.

“We need to win games. It’s as simple as that.”

On the clean sheet, Neil added: “To be honest, I’d take a 2-1. It’s just one of those where if you’re not going to score, it’s really important you keep it tight at the back.

“Our game management, our decision-making in the game was better than recent weeks.”
