Christian: A Long Way To Go

Christian Dailly warns Norwich that they still have a lot of work to do to ensure promotion this season.

Despite their position clear at the top of the table, and talk of them pulling clear, he says:

"Winning against Bradford put the pressure on and the game against Norwich is huge.

"If we were in Norwich's position I don't think we would be thinking we were there so I don't think they will be yet.

"It was a tough game at Bradford but it was a case of battering away; we dug in in the second half and it was a great three points."

He is delighted by the form of Steve Bywater and adds:

"Everyone is keeping his feet on the ground but he is down to earth anyway and everyone respects him."

He was pleased that he got his first clean sheet at Fulham last weekend and adds:

"We are so attack minded we are not going to keep clean sheets all the time - but we can outscore teams.

"I think we have scored a lot of goals without Jermain Defoe playing so we have not done too badly."

Christian, who was involved in Scotland's 4-0 defeat at Wales - and new club team mate Andy Melville - midweek, says the domestic outlook is rosy.

"There is competition in every place, a lot of strength in depth - and one thing there is is character," he insists.
