Daniel Farke: Bristol City's form shows it will be tough

22 September 2017

Daniel Farke believes the form of his side’s next opponents, Bristol City, shows just how tough a test his team will face on Saturday.

Lee Johnson’s men made it eight games unbeaten in all competitions on Tuesday when they beat Stoke City 2-0 in the Carabao Cup, joining the Canaries in the fourth round.

Farke is well aware of the Robins’ form but said his side are looking forward to the challenge.

“It’s a big task but it will be a great challenge,” he said, speaking to the local media at his pre-match press conference. “We had a brilliant last week with really good results in the league and cup as well but the same goes for Bristol City.

“They’ve only had one defeat in their last eight games and they’re on fire at the moment. But we are too.

“It will be a game with two teams full of confidence and momentum right now. It will be a hard test because when you have such a game in such a moment, normally it’s a little easier for the away team. They’ve had good results and there may not be as much pressure on them so they can sit a little deeper and see what happens.

“It’s normally more difficult and complicated for the home team because there can be more pressure on us to get the result.

Farke also called on the home support to turn Carrow Road into a fortress and he hopes his team can deliver a victory for them.

“Our home must be our living room and our fortress," he added. "The atmosphere improves from game to game and also in the away games, the support was brilliant at the Tuesday match.

“We’re looking forward to having this home game because we feel good at home. We want to make it a fortress and play in a good atmosphere with lots of noise.

“We can’t wait to stand together with our fans. It’s important for us. Football is for the fans and we always have that in our minds – we play for our fans.”

Canaries draw at home with Bristol City

23 September 2017

Norwich City stretched their unbeaten run to five games in all competitions with a 0-0 draw with Bristol City at Carrow Road.

Mario Vrancic and Marco Stiepermann both missed fantastic opportunities in the first-half but a tight second half saw the match end goalless.

Daniel Farke made three changes from his starting eleven for last weekend’s win at Sheffield United. Harrison Reed earned a recall in place of Alex Tettey in holding midfield, with Marley Watkins and Mario Vrancic replacing Yanic Wildschut and James Maddison in the attacking midfield positions.

The Canaries started the better of the two sides and went close in the opening minutes when Vrancic’s through ball was curled just wide by Cameron Jerome.

However, the visitors enjoyed large periods of possession in the opening 20 minutes although guilt-edged chances were at a premium. Their best efforts came from Joe Bryan and Josh Brownhill who both missed the target from speculative, long range strikes.

Farke’s men seized back control of the game and went close on 26 minutes with the best chance of the first-half. Jerome did brilliantly to hold the ball up on the right and he found Vrancic in the box but the Bosnian’s effort cannoned back off the far post.

City had the ball in the net moments later but Jerome’s delicate header was ruled out for offside after Reed had nodded the ball back into danger.

On 38 minutes, the hosts really should have taken the lead. Jerome’s deflected cross fell kindly to Stiepermann in the six-yard box but he fired wide from a couple of yards with Robins’ keeper Frank Fielding closing him down.

Both sides exchanged efforts on goal at the start of the second half with Brownhill firing straight at Angus Gunn before Tom Trybull volleyed wide.

Vrancic had been in the thick of the action all game and, on 55 minutes, his weaving run earned City a free-kick on the edge of the box. Vrancic stepped up himself but his free-kick took a flick off the Bristol City wall and looped just over.

After City’s early second half control, the visitors came back into the match around 60 minutes in but rarely threatened Gunn in goal. Bryan probably had their best chance but he wasted it from a good position inside the City penalty area.

In reality, the second half lacked any real cutting edge from both sides and as the game ended 0-0, City were left ruing those missed opportunities in the first half.

Nonetheless, the draw extended the Canaries' unbeaten run to five games in all competitions and it earned them their fourth Championship clean sheet in a row.
