Midfielder eyeing revenge against Addicks

ALEX Tettey is determined to make amends for Norwich City's home defeat to Charlton Athletic when they travel to The Valley tomorrow evening (19:45).

The Canaries were the dominant force back at Carrow Road in September, having a goal disallowed before two strong claims for penalties were also waved away.

They were made to pay the ultimate price when Johnnie Jackson struck a late Addicks winner, and Tettey told the media at Colney on Monday: "It was a game we should have won, which everyone saw, but they ended up winning 1-0.

"We created every chance we could have so perhaps we can take that bitterness into the game tomorrow. I remember it as if we played against them yesterday, so for me personally it would be a good thing to go there and win.

"The four games coming up are very crucial, so if we can be consistent then anything is possibe. We really want to keep winning, and to keep doing the right things.

"We are very aware that if we get consistent performances then it will get us to where we want to be at the end. Hopefully we can continue our good performance from the Blackpool game."

Having been left out of the side which began the weekend victory over the Lancashire strugglers, Tettey is eager for a swift return to the heart of City's midfield.

However, the Norwegian international understands the need for changes as his team continue their push for a return to the Premier League, commenting: "The gaffer spoke to me about the reason I didn’t play and I accepted it.

"There is a game tomorrow, and I will be very interested in playing since I didn’t on Saturday. Charlton will be more difficult than Blackpool were here, so if the gaffer chooses to play me I’m fresh and ready to go.

"Personally, I think it's good to rotate; it shows the manager has a big squad and knows how to use it.

"As a player, you are here to work. If they say play, you play. If they say no, you are disappointed but move on."

Wolves, Saturday February 14, 3pm
