Drury hails positive approach
Adam Drury has pinpointed Norwich's attacking ambition as the main difference between success and failure in the Premier League.
The experienced full-back was part of the Canaries squad that played in the top-flight the last time the club won promotion from Championship, but their return to the big time was a short-lived affair as they were immediately relegated at the end of the 2004/05 season. Drury is in no doubt why City have fared better this time around, having captained that side that went up and then went down so quickly under Nigel Worthington eight years ago. The 33-year-old, who is celebrating his testimonial season at Carrow Road after more than 10 years of services with the club, highlights two factors above all else for the rise and rise of the Canaries since Paul Lambert took over as manager. He told the Norwich Evening News said: "It is a tight knit of lads, especially this season and that's the reason we have done so well. The team bonding and the unit we have got has been fantastic. "Maybe this time we're a bit more attacking as well. We go out to win every game this time, whereas maybe before we would try to contain teams and thought, 'Right - don't get beat'. "This time we go into every game thinking we can win it, no matter who we are playing. You have got to have no fear and the manager sets us out like that. Whoever we play, he sets us out with an attacking mindset and we take the game to them, it's as simple as that. You go and win, that's what it's all about." By the end of this season, Drury will have played over 330 times for City, having joined the club from Peterborough for a bargain £500,000 in 2001 and to mark the occasion, Celtic are due at Carrow Road for his testimonial match on May 22nd.
