Bennett set up Robert Snodgrass and Michael Turner in the 2-2 home draw with Swansea, Norwich's 14th of the league campaign as they edged up to 35 points.

While Chris Hughton's side have now won just once in 15 Premier League games, Bennett took the point from the clash, which leaves the Canaries in 14th-place in the table, four points above the drop zone.

"Sometimes it's not all about winning games. If we could get 38 draws in a season we would get 38 points and that would probably be enough to keep us up, wouldn't it?" he said.

"We are obviously disappointed that we didn't get the three points.

"But it's another important point and we are still not in the worst position in the world.

"So we just have to keep plodding along and picking up the points we need to stay up. Another six points from our last six games would give us 41 points and that would probably be good enough."

Michu put the Swans ahead but Snodgrass and Turner gave the Canaries the advantage before Luke Moore then equalised for the visitors.

Snodgrass added: "I was obviously happy with the two assists. We started badly but then rallied well.

"It was a shame we conceded a second goal but it's another point nearer where we want to be."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
