City striker calls for 'right approach' against Terriers

CAMERON Jerome has urged Norwich City to be at their collective best when they continue their Sky Bet Championship promotion bid at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday (19:45).

The Canaries rattled in five second half goals to secure a convincing victory over the Terriers at Carrow Road in December, with the striker one of four players to find the target that day.

Chris Powell's side are winless in five league matches, and Jerome told the media at Colney Training Centre on Monday: "The games are coming thick and fast now, so we've got to make sure we're right at it.

"There are so many teams that could gatecrash the top two which makes it all to play for. I'm sure everyone else will be feeling the same as us; that they're confident they can do it.

"With the run of games we've got I'm confident we can get enough victories to propel ourselves into the top two come the end of the season. We're fifth now, and three points off a top two positions.

"If we approach games in the right way, and apply ourselves in the right way, I'm sure we'll get results. We've got to give it our all in the last nine games and be ruthless."

The Huddersfield-born forward took his personal goal tally to 18 on Saturday by netting the opener in the 1-1 draw with promotion rivals Derby County.

He struck 20 times in all competitions during a stand-out 2005-06 campaign, although stressed personal honours are of secondary importance, commenting: "I don't set out for individual accolades.

"It's pleasing to score goals because that's obviously what I was brought to the Club to do, so if it happens then I'll take the plaudits. I like to be a team player and think I've contributed a lot around the place.

"It would be nice to break my record but I don't sit there at night thinking about it. I just get on with it, because it would mean nothing if we don't get promoted as it would all be in vain.

"I'd rather score fewer goals and us get automatic promotion than score a bundle but be nowhere near it."
Nottingham Forest, Saturday March 21, 3pm
