ARINSE UADE: HOME CROWD A BIG FACTOR

3 March 2016

Free entry for Carrow Road contest

DEFENDER Arinse Uade is hopeful of another bumper Carrow Road attendance when Dmitri Halajko’s Development Squad host Manchester City at Carrow Road on Friday (7pm), with tickets FREE to all supporters.

City have been well supported at their home venue across the current campaign, helping to pave the way for impressive victories over the likes of Villarreal and Manchester United among others.

Speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk about the impact of a large crowd, Uade said: "Having fans there does make a real difference for us, so we appreciate people making the effort to come and watch.

"Being away from home in our last couple of games has been tough, especially against very strong opposition in the form of Manchester United and Chelsea. It’s important for us to forget about those last two games now, because we’re facing another big team in Manchester City.

"We want to put the things right which haven’t gone for us in those previous matches, so we’re looking forward to it. Playing at Carrow Road is a great experience for all of us; it pushes everyone on because you realise just how much you want to play your first team football there.

"Every part of it is really special, and the fans who turn up give us the encouragement to show what we can do on the pitch."

After linking up with City’s Development Squad on a full-time basis in December following a successful trial, Uade wants to make the most of the remaining months of the campaign.

"I’m ready to push on now because I’ve really enjoyed being a regular in the side so far," he outlined enthusiastically.

"Hopefully I can continue to do that, and as a team we’re looking to get some momentum going. We’ve got regular games now until the end of the season, so it’s a chance for us to find some rhythm after not having too many fixtures in recent weeks.

"In home games, whoever you’re playing, you want to approach the game as favourites. The fans’ support is a big factor in our performances, and we’re hoping to give them another positive result on Friday.

"I’ve had a good record in my games at Carrow Road so far; we’re yet to lose and I want to keep that run going as long as possible."

We will be joining the team on Friday night to provide coverage across our digital channels, with video highlights to follow on Norwich City TV.
