Boss hails team's attacking potential

CITY are well prepared for their Carrow Road return against Sheffield Wednesday (5.30pm), says manager Alex Neil.

Neil is hopeful his team will put in a similar performance to last weekend's showing against Blackburn, even though he expects the Owls - who lost in last season's play-off final - to provide a difficult test.

"I think your home games are always important. We've always been strong home, even last season we got most of our wins there," Neil told Norwich City TV.

"Although most teams will come here to make it difficult, we've got the quality to break them down.

"I think Sheffied Wednesday will be different though. I think they'll come and it will be an open game. They will play the way they generally play, and they got a good result against Aston Villa.

"Their biggest asset is their middle to front, and we need to make sure that we nullify that and impose ourselves going forward."

Neil believes that the 4-1 win at Ewood Park firmly put to bed any lingering memories from their Premier League relegation, adding: "We had to get off to a good start.

"The fans would have wanted that and we wanted that. What it does do is put the ghost of last season behind us.

"For our front four to score four goals in the first game shows the attacking intent and quality we do have in the squad.

"We've had a good week and hopefully we can perform as well as we did on Saturday."
