Drury: Let's limit the damage

Adam Drury has warned City not to let yesterday's Portman Road disaster affect the rest of the Canaries' season.

Adam Drury has warned City not to let yesterday's Portman Road disaster affect the rest of the Canaries' season.

“We have to make sure this doesn't snowball now for the rest of the season,” said the City skipper. “Although everyone is disappointed and absolutely gutted at the way it has gone, we have to make sure we bounce back now, we have to make sure there won't be a hangover in other games.”

Drury says City failed to notice of the warning shot fired across their bows in the first half, even though they held the lead for a while.

“We got a warning but didn't take it on board and second half they came out and played better than us again, which hurt,” he said. “All the lads in there are hurt and we have to make sure it doesn't carry on now and ruin our season.

“It was poor, we never got started and it basically wasn't good enough. With the run we have been on of late we should have come here looking for a result. The gaffer goes into every game trying to get a win but the way we played today we didn't deserve it.

“It is one of those things - we have been discussing it between ourselves and with the gaffer and asking where has it gone wrong. You can look at different things but at the end of the day excuses are no good. You have to perform. We have to do it on the pitch and today we didn't.”

Dury denied that the record under Grant of four wins out of six before yesterday's trip into Suffolk had allowed complacency to creep in against a side who had lost their previous two games.

“We would never be too complacent, especially in a derby,” he said. “We never had that attitude at all. On the day we never got going and never really started.

“Although we went ahead that was a bit against the run of play and we were very lucky to go in at half-time the way it was. But other teams will play well if we don't stamp our authority on the game and first and foremost win the battle and then play, so that's the way it was today.”
