Norwich City right-back Max Aarons admits this season has been a steep learning curve for him as he continues his development in the Premier League.
The 20-year-old has featured 25 times for the Canaries in his debut season in the top-flight. City sit seven points from safety as they prepare to welcome high-flying Leicester City to Carrow Road on Friday evening.
Aarons is hoping his side won't leave the pitch feeling the same amount of disappointment as they did in the reverse fixture in December despite playing well.
Reciting that game at the King Power Stadium, Aarons said: "It was a positive game for us," he added. "I think all the lads were disappointed not to win that one.
"We started it really well and were on the front foot. At the time, they were on the back of lots of wins, so to go there and get a point was good, but ultimately I remember us being disappointed."
City's defeat to Wolves on Sunday has seen pessimism from supporters increase, with the size of task at hand seemingly growing following every defeat. For Aarons, it's all about remaining positive as they seek to complete a great escape similar to that which the Foxes achieved back in 2014/15.
Aarons has been touted with a move to a number of high profile clubs, with his performances making him the subject of intense transfer speculation. Despite the rumours surrounding his future, the England under-21 international is ensuring his focus remains on City's survival mission.
"It's been a real learning curve. I've been learning every week playing at the highest level and it's great for me personally.
"I'd rather be higher up the table, one hundred percent, but all of the lads are trying and hopefully we can come back with a reaction from the Wolves game. Hopefully, that leads to a positive result," Aarons told the club's official website.
"We knew coming into this division that there would be lots of ups and downs. We'd have liked there to be more ups than there have been until this point, but all we can do is keep battling and keep fighting and that's what we will do. We'll go out there and show a reaction, one hundred percent. Hopefully, that turns into three points."
