Striker speaks after netting five goals in three games

CAMERON JEROME praised the high quality of service he’s getting from his teammates after taking his Canaries goal tally to six in five games with a brace against Birmingham City.

The forward, who signed from Stoke City in the summer, struck twice in three second half minutes to earn Neil Adams’ outfit a 2-2 draw against his old employers at Carrow Road.

“I’ve always played in teams recently that have been ultra-defensive so I’ve never really got service like that. I haven’t had service like that since I was at Birmingham.” he told Norwich City TV after the final whistle.

“With the quality of the full-backs and wingers we’ve got at our disposal, and with myself, Lewis and others who can score goals, then we’re going to be a major threat.

“For me, as a striker I just want to be scoring goals and playing games.”

Birmingham’s counter-attacking style in the first period pushed them into a surprise lead at the break, and Jerome thinks the Canaries can expect similar tactics from teams visiting Carrow Road in the future.

“They came with a game plan and I think they executed it quite well in the first half,” he added.

“It’s a learning curve for us in terms of what teams are going to do here. They’re going to shut up shop, make it difficult and then spring on the counter-attack.

“I thought we played some good stuff in the first half, I thought we were just a bit lazy and sloppy in terms of giving away possession, but that’s to be expected maybe after three games in a week.

“We seem to be giving teams head starts, but for myself it’s nice to be on the goal sheet and for the team to keep our unbeaten run going, even though we probably think it’s two points dropped today.”
