Football - Snodgrass ready to put in the hard yards

Winger Robert Snodgrass is ready to cover every blade of grass at Carrow Road again if it helps Norwich beat Southampton and move them closer to securing Barclays Premier League status.

The Scotland midfielder, signed from Leeds in the summer, has provided a good link-up between defence and attack for Chris Hughton's men, who will be out to make it back-to-back home wins tomorrow and put last weekend's 4-0 defeat at Manchester United out of their system.

And Snodgrass, 25, is happy to put another 90 minutes of hard graft in up and down the flanks if it means Norwich get the result at full-time.

"The fitness coaches show you your numbers, and as an individual you try to beat that each week, so with me running six or seven miles, it is about trying to help the team," said Snodgrass, who has been called up for Scotland's World Cup qualifiers against Serbia and Wales.

"People can speak about it taking individuals to win games, but if those individuals are not on their day, then you look for a team (effort) to pull you through - maybe Sebastien Bassong or Michael Turner flicking one in on 94 minutes to keep us in this league.

"We know what it takes as players and as a team - the most important thing is we get the three points and everyone as a club pulls in the right direction."
