Norwich City boss Alex Neil has said he and his players are proving their desire to win games of football.

The Canaries came from behind to win 2-1 at Blackburn on Tuesday and register a fifth successive victory.

"It means the world to me. I'm here to win games and do the best I can for Norwich and my group of players," Neil told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"I know it means a lot to the fans, but I can assure you, it means everything to this group of players."

Scot Neil, 33, has now won seven of his nine games in charge since taking over from Neil Adams in January.

The former Hamilton Academical boss has suffered just one defeat and the victory at Ewood Park, which required some last-gasp defending, keeps them within four points of the Championship's top two.

"You have to defend the box with your life. You put your head and feet where it hurts," he said.

"They deserve all the credit for the second half. How much do they actually want it? You can talk about it all day long, but the proof is in the pudding."
