Lots of positives to take

13 March 2017

Tony Mowbray felt there were plenty of positives to take from Saturday's draw with Norwich City.

Having assessed the weekend point at Carrow Road, the boss saw a lot that was pleasing in the match to give them the confidence going into Tuesday night's match with Fulham.

Mowbray was happy with the desire and determination of the team as his unbeaten start was extended to five matches.

"I think it is right to emphasise the positive stuff from the weekend," said the manager.

"They put a lot of effort into it, they controlled huge spells of the game, but the frustration is that we probably didn't have enough efforts on target. But when you are playing against a lot of men behind the ball because they were down a man it makes it difficult at times, it is not always easy against ten men.

"We eventually did and ultimately the frustration came from being in front with eight minutes to go and not taking all three points.

"But there were lots of positives, it was great to see the desire to keep going, to keep pushing hard to get the goals eventually.

"We'll take those positives into the next game and realise that we can hurt teams, we can score goals, we can move the ball around the pitch, we can be competitive in all games, whatever type it is."
