Norwich fullback Max Aarons happy with Brighton point

Norwich City fullback Max Aarons says there's big positives to draw from their 0-0 draw with Brighton.

The Canaries put in a positive display and created lots of chances throughout the 90 minutes.

Teemu Pukki and Josh Sargent, who started up front, both went close to getting the winning goal.

However, despite the frustration of not converting those chances, Aarons labelled the performance the team's best so far this season.

“It was definitely our best performance this season," he said. “As a team I feel we are improving and hopefully we can start turning those draws into wins.

“I think the performance had everything apart from that final bit in terms of finishing it off. We were defensively solid, just like we were at Burnley, but we created more today going forward.

“I thought we were very, very good and we just lacked that final bit in front of goal. If we were a little bit more confident, we would have got the three points today."

Aarons added: “You can see in the last two games that, with the change in formation, that we are a lot more solid defensively and that gives you the platform to go on and, hopefully, win a game and that is what we need.

“We created a lot more chances today, which felt good, I think we are building into the new formation and if we can take the chances that we created today into game next week then hopefully we can start finishing them off."
