McGeehan: It's a big gameCITY’s Under-21s are looking forward to the test of facing Liverpool this Wednesday says midfielder Cameron McGeehan.
The Canaries are a point behind their opponents in the Barclays Under-21s Premier League ahead of the game, and after an impressive 4-2 win at Fulham in their last outing, McGeehan says confidence is increasing in the group after a mixed start.
“We’ve been doing a lot better recently but we’ve just got to keep building and try to finish as high as we can,” McGeehan told reporters at City’s Colney Training Centre.
“Being in and around teams like Liverpool is good we have to try and catch them and push on.”
The 19-year-old knows what to expect from a bumper home crowd at Carrow Road – entry is free to all supporters, and tickets can be booked HERE.
“It gives the game a bit more of an edge and a bit more meaning. It’s a league game for us, a big game against Liverpool,” he said.
“The fans have always been great, we saw that against Tottenham in the last game at Carrow Road and in the FA Youth Cup a couple of seasons ago.
“Norwich fans are amazing; they always have been and they give us a real boost.”
In a busy week for the Club’s Academy, the Under-18s kick off their FA Youth Cup campaign on Thursday night with an away tie at Doncaster Rovers.
McGeehan memorably captained the youth team to victory two seasons ago and he thinks self-belief is the key to having a run in the competition.
“We were a really tight group, on and off the pitch and it was all about believing in ourselves,” he commented.
“The first two or three rounds are always tough games, and you’ve just got to try and get through them and build momentum.
“Once you’re through and you start playing in lovely stadiums and against big teams, you can let your football do the talking.”
