Norwich adapting to Premier League - Byram

Defender Sam Byram believes Norwich are starting to adapt to the demands of life in the Premier League.

Norwich picked up a crucial 2-0 win over Everton on Saturday to offer hope in their battle for survival this season.

Todd Cantwell and Dennis Srbeny netted at Goodison Park to hand the Canaries their first league triumph since September 14 when they stunned Manchester City.

It ended a run of seven games without a victory, losing six of them, and has moved Norwich within three points off safety.

Finally, the Norwich faithful have something to be cheerful about and the gloom has temporarily lifted around the club.

However, they cannot afford to dwell on the win for too long as they prepare for their next test in the Premier League.

A home clash with Arsenal is next on the agenda at Carrow Road on Sunday before they make a key trip to relegation-rivals Southampton on Wednesday.

Games are set to come thick and fast over the next few weeks as the season heads into the festive period and momentum is crucial for the struggling side.

Byram, who joined in a £750,000 deal over the summer, admits Norwich have found it tough to make the step up from the Championship after winning promotion, but he believes they are gradually starting to find their feet and has hailed the mood within the changing room.

Byram said: "We've showed that we can compete at this level. It's very small margins and the difference to last year is that if you give a mistake away at this level, they are going to punish you.

"Coming off the back of last year it's a group that's predominantly the same squad and going from winning every week, to having tough times when you are on the back of a few losses, is hard to take. But the spirit has been really good and I think that really showed."
