Surman ready to nail down regular Norwich place

Norwich City midfielder Andrew Surman is determined to improve on the 21 Premier League starts of last season by impressing new boss Chris Hughton. "I was pleased with the amount of games I played, but you always want to play more games, score more goals," the 25 year old told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"I want to play an even more pivotal role in the team's progress."

Competition for places in midfield will be even keener this season with Robert Snodgrass and Jacob Butterfield having joined the Canaries from Leeds and Barnsley over the summer.

"I don't think anyone will be guilty of taking their foot off the pedal, whoever the manager is," he said.

"Everyone's got things to prove and everyone's on a level playing field now.

"Everyone wants to be in the Premiership. We don't want to have a bad season, especially after last season's success."
