Bennett Wants Strong Finish

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.

Bennett: Doesn't want season to peter out

The Canaries may well have been beaten 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.

QPR's defeat at Chelsea on Sunday meant Norwich could not be caught and would continue the club's progress under Lambert, who oversaw two successive promotions up from npower League One.

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, signed from Brighton last summer and who scored his first Premier League goal in the impressive win at Tottenham on Easter Monday, feels Norwich must look to produce a response after avoiding what many predicted would be a season-long scrap for their top-flight status.

"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," Bennett said in the Eastern Daily Press.

"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."
