Adam Drury has been there and done it with Norwich City - and he is more than willing to share his experiences with his current team-mates so he can do it again.

The Canaries stalwart signed by Nigel Worthington in 2001 was captain the last time City picked up silverware, the Championship winning campaign of 2003-04.

And the left-back admits he has no problem using that experience to help him and his colleagues complete promotion from League One at the first time of asking.

"Obviously the lads keep reminding me I'm one of the oldest now and I try and use my experience the best I can and pass it on to the rest of the lads," said Drury.

"This is the most important time of the season now and we've just got keep going out and grinding out wins.

"We've got tough games coming up but as long as we keep doing what we're doing we don't have to worry about other teams."

City have been under the pressure of relegation in recent years, but Drury believes this season's pressure - to stay top of your division and win every game you play - is what every player wants.

He said: "If you look at how it was last year it was a different type of pressure. This is a pressure you enjoy. This is what you want to be doing. You want to be challenging for titles and winning things.

"Some lads, like Doc (Gary Doherty) for example, who has had a good career, has played at the highest level but you can go through your whole career and win nothing.

"We have got the chance now to go on and win a title and get something to show for it, and at the end of the career you can look back and say you won it. That is what it's all about for us."

Promotion is the aim - the title is the ambition.

"That is what we are aiming for, we want to finish first - that is what it's all about," added Drury.

"We have given ourselves a great chance of doing it and now we've just got to make sure we get over the finishing line.

"Everyone wishes you the best and wants you to do well, and they want us to finish the job off now."
