City head to St Andrew's this Saturday

ALEX Neil hopes his team will enter the first international break on a high with three points from Saturday's trip to Birmingham City (3pm).

The Canaries face a fortnight without a fixture after a busy opening few weeks of the campaign that has seen them notch eight points in the league, and progress to Round Three of the EFL Cup.

Neil told Norwich City TV on Friday: "It's going to be a difficult game against Birmingham, who will be well organised and are at home. It becomes more difficult when teams sit in, they will counter-attack us.

"If we add another three points, we've had a really good start then. We can regroup after the international break, and hopefully do as well as we have done."

Neil maintains that he's looking for more from his side in the attacking third after being held to a draw in the East Anglian derby - though three points will always be top of his priority list.

"We want to be as attractive as we can be in terms of the way we play, but first of all we want to win," he added.

"We'll always look at performance, we want them to be as good as they can be, and there is certainly scope for improvement.

"We need to make sure that our game comes together a bit than what it has done over recent weeks, but our first port of call is to go there and win the game."
