Ryan Bennett calls for Norwich focus

Carrow RoadRyan Bennett insists Norwich are not safe from relegation just yet and has ruled out complacency.

Bennett grabbed his first goal for the Canaries in the 2-1 win over Reading last time out, a result that saw Norwich move seven points clear of the drop zone.

However, the defender feels that the form of the other teams in and around the relegation places is a cause for concerns and insists Norwich can’t afford to relax just yet.

“Every result is important and the big results earlier in the season got us to this point and gave us a chance, but at this stage with the teams around us going well, Reading was an important win,” he told the Norwich Evening News.

“I don’t think you can look at whether the points we’ve got are enough for safety. That’s not the question we are asking. We are looking to push on and get as many results as can, so that’s hopefully what we will do.

“We’ve just got to keep looking forward. We’ve got a couple of games we could win. The last game of the season (at Manchester City) is going to be tough, but before then we’ve got a couple of games we can win.”

The 23-year-old defender was named man of the match against Reading after replacing the injured Michael Turner on 18 minutes and could be set to start at Stoke on Saturday.
