Cool heads and togetherness will help end Norwich City’s poor form, according to fan favourite midfielder Gabriel Sara.

The Brazilian was a key man as the Canaries started the season in fine fashion, going eight games unbeaten and breaking into the Championship promotion places.

Their form has gone downhill since injuries to Josh Sargent and Ashley Barnes, however, with a six-game winless run ended with Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Cardiff.

Sara believes that can be the result to kickstart another positive streak for the Norfolk side, despite significant pressure on head coach David Wagner.

“Everyone knew how important that game was, and that victory gave us belief, not just for us but for the fans as well,” he said. “It’s been tough times, but in these moments we have to stick together and keep moving from there. Sometimes we’re not going to win, we’re going to draw, we never know.

“But the important thing is that everyone sticks together, and if everyone sticks together our chance to win is much bigger. This happened on Saturday. We had the support from the fans, everyone was together playing on the pitch.

“Even when they scored two goals we kept fighting and kept fighting. We deserved the win because of that, because everyone had the same mindset, focused on the game and believing that we could win. If we keep working like this, we’re going to deserve even more things.”

The 24-year-old knows his team’s performances have been substandard in recent months, but told The Pink Un that only small tweaks are required to address the issue.

“It’s our job,” he continued. “Two months ago we were almost the best team in the league, we were winning games and everybody was talking about us.

“Now we are losing games, and football is like this. If we don’t keep the consistency then another team is going to do that.

“For us it’s a challenge. I know everyone is not happy, but we have to keep moving, because we cannot think that we’re not good enough. No, we have to relax, focus on our job and do our job right.

“Sometimes the problems aren’t that big, and it’s something we can fix. We have a great team, we’ve shown this before.”
