Preparations keeping Canaries on track says striker

NORWICH City are achieving their targets for pre-season according to striker Lewis Grabban.

The Canaries comfortably saw off Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice 5-1 at Carrow Road on Monday night, with Grabban opening his goalscoring account for the Club with a first half strike.

He says everything is slotting into place ahead of the big kick-off against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 10.

“It’s just a steady incline to be at your best come the start of the campaign, that’s how I see it,” commented the summer signing from Bournemouth.

“I think throughout this pre-season we’ve been getting better and better, and Monday showed that again, I thought we were really good. We kept the ball well and we punished them when we needed to.

“It was nice to be in front of the fans and score in my first game at Carrow Road, and to also get some minutes under my belt. I’ve had a little niggling injury so it was good.”

Grabban is confident of adding plenty more goals to his tally if City’s offensive promise continues.

“Going forward I think we’re very quick, and we have intelligence especially when Wes (Hoolahan) is on the ball,” he said.

“I think we’re going to be able to create a lot of chances, so then it’s down to the forwards to put them away.”

On settling in at the Club, he added: “As footballers we have to adjust quickly to new situations, and moving to a new club is just that.

“The quicker the better, and I think I’ve settled in well to the area and into the team, so hopefully we can just keep on the rise.”
