Defender ready for Hornets clash

NORWICH City go into their Barclays Premier League game at Watford on Saturday (3pm) with momentum, according to defender Andre Wisdom.

The Canaries secured a 1-1 draw against Arsenal last weekend, producing an excellent performance against Arsene Wenger's title-chasers. 

Speaking to the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday morning, Wisdom said: "Watford have been great so far this season but we're confident after our last performance.

"They are a handful up-front with Odion Ighalo and Troy Deeney, although it's like that every week in the Premier League. No striker does nothing these days, so hopefully we'll keep them quiet.

"We have to try and beat the teams around us but our objective is always the same as every game is worth three points."

Wisdom has had to bide his time for first team action since arriving on loan from Liverpool in July, initially being kept out of the side by Steven Whittaker and Russell Martin.

However, he has gradually worked his way into Alex Neil's plans, starting each of City's last three league games.

"It's good to be playing as that's what I came here for," the 22-year-old explained.

"We've got a competitive squad but hopefully I can keep my place now. If you show enough in training then you'll get the opportunity in matches.

"The manager is pretty straightforward like that, which is good. You should train how you play every day, which I try to do.

"That approach is paying off for me now and I try to take something from every game I play. I'm still learning but don't see myself as a young player anymore because I'm starting to come into my own."
