Norwich boss Alex Neil says he will do all he can to keep the Canaries in the Premier League because it is the least the fans deserve.
The Canaries have not won in the last nine games and slipped into the bottom three following the latest defeat against Swansea City at the weekend.
However, the fans’ support has never wavered with big followings at the Liberty Stadium and Leicester, while there will be another full house when Manchester City visit Carrow Road this weekend.
Neil says he feels for the supporters because neither he nor the players have delivered, but has vowed to keep on fighting right to the very end.
“The one thing I would say is there is no reason for the fans to back us as much as they have done because we have not given them much, that is me being honest, and that disappoints me greatly because I want to do well for this club and for them, but we will keep going and keep trying,” he said.
“I would like to think the fans recognise I am doing everything I possibly can to try and keep us in the league, and that the players are doing their very best too.
“I don’t think anybody could say about my players that they are not trying or that they are giving up.
“In the last few games these guys are losing teeth and getting gashed heads and everything, and they keep going and they keep trying. I am working as hard as I possibly can to make it work.
“The fans have been in great form, they have stuck with us, we have not given them a lot to shout about and I thought they were in fine voice again (at Swansea).”
