Bennett wants Canaries to end on a high

Elliott Bennett maintains Norwich will be looking to finish their top-flight campaign on a high with Barclays Premier League safety assured ahead of the final two games of the season.

The Canaries may well have been stuffed in each of their last three outings - the last when Luis Suarez helped himself to a hat-trick in Liverpool's 3-0 win at Carrow Road - but Paul Lambert's men had already done the hard work to pass the 40 points barrier.

And Bennett, signed from Brighton last summer and who scored his first Premier League goal in the impressive win at Tottenham on Easter Monday, told the Eastern Daily Press: "It is massively important to end on a bit of a high, because it would be a shame to waste all the hard work and some of the great things we have achieved this season and haven't achieved in the last few games."

Next up on Saturday is the small matter of a trip to Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal will be out to keep themselves on course for third place, before relegation-threatened Aston Villa head to Norfolk on May 13.

Bennett added: "We will be looking to put it right this week in training and give a good account of ourselves at Arsenal.

"We will have a good think about what we could have done better and then put it right.

"Hopefully next week at Arsenal we can put the Liverpool performance behind us and then against Aston Villa we can do the same."
